Our design experts understand the manufacturing process, and will work with you to create product designs that meet both functional and aesthetic requirements and are optimized for rapid manufacturing and 3D printing or for conventional molding and casting. We work with industry-leading product designers who have worked on projects ranging from luxury cell phones to automotive parts and accessories to speakers and headphones. Our experts will work with you to create a design that will look and feel great for users while being specifically adapted for the requirements of mass production.


The Product Design Process

While 3D printing and other technological advancements in CAD design and manufacturing have changed the game, there are core fundamentals of the product design process which will always stay the same. Product design is often a non-linear process involving plenty of revisions, reimaginings, and recalibrations. Even so, a good product design process is characterized by three core phases: analysis, conception, and implementation. These stages are not wholly distinct, as the designer will move back and forth between them continually during the design process. 

  • Analysis: This is the initial stage where the goal is to define what the problem is that needs to be solved by the new design, and determining the most efficient route to solve that problem. This is a critical stage in the design process. The design problem becomes the selling point of the product and the value proposition you have to offer customers down the road. The product design process is fundamentally centered around the task of providing an elegant solution to a real-world problem. This is the phase of the design cycle where preliminary research is undertaken to identify that problem and inform the direction of product development. 
  • Conception: The product begins to take shape. The problems identified during analysis become the design goals that the product will need to satisfy in order to succeed in the market. The niche into which the product will fit is clarified and a focus is given to the design project. This phase represents the shift from thinking about the problems to be solved to thinking about the product that will solve them and what parameters will determine the form of that product.
  • Implementation: This phase exists in constant interaction with the conception phase. Here, ideas are brainstormed, and innovation is the goal. Out of this creative process, a limited selection of feasible and appropriate solutions emerges. It now becomes possible to develop a plan for the actual creation of the product. Prototypes can now be generated and compared, materials selected, and the contesting solutions can be evaluated to determine the ideal implementation. 

We help our clients through any or all of these design phases. Our services are flexible to reflect the different points at which inventors and entrepreneurs may need assistance in the design cycle. We offer professional experienced designers that can guide you through right from the initial analysis, and we offer custom-tailored services to help you meet your project goals at any other stage of development. Let us know where you're at, and we'll meet you there. 

Wrapping It Up With a Bow: Packaging Design and Marketing Presentations

Designing a great, innovative, and functional product is great. But it will never be successful if you can't get it into the hands and homes of consumers! Developing compelling and creative packaging design for your invention is almost as important as the design of the product itself. They say you can't judge a book by its cover, but they also say a picture is worth a thousand words, and we keep putting covers on books! Our creative packaging designers will ensure that your product gets the attractive package it needs to be successful on the market. You can also take advantage of our marketing display and exhibition services to create professional and compelling retail displays.
