1. Idea Generation

What we do

We research your market, your customers, your competitors and existing registered intellectual property. We build up an insight that allows us to come up with new ideas to make your product distinct and better than the competition, and valuable in the eyes of your customer.

What you get

A complete picture of the market along with a focused range of ideas to discuss, explore and progress.

2. Concept Development

What we do

From the range of ideas we work closely with you to take the best forward. We then combine and develop these to produce a viable range for your review. Often aspects from different concepts will be selected and incorporated into the final design concept. In this stage we make proof of principle prototypes to validate novel aspects of the design.

What you get

A select range of feasible concepts incorporating new ideas which match your product requirements.

3. Detail Design

What we do

We develop the functionality of your concept further, building 3D CAD files of the product to examine sizing, tolerances, material choices and manufacturability. Our experience of design for manufacture allows us to consider the best functional solutions so that your product not only performs well but also meets your production budget. We use Finite Element Analysis software to simulate the loads your product will experience during use, ensuring robustness and safety in the final product. We build full size or scale prototypes to test usability.

What you get

Your finalised product as a series of 3D CAD components in an assembly, allowing you to see how your product will work, complete with photorealistic renderings to allow you to visualise the final product in situ.

4. Prototyping

What we do

We use the latest rapid prototyping and CNC technologies to achieve realistic, cost effective models. Creating a final pre-production prototype in the same or similar materials to be used in manufacture has three key benefits:
1. Users get a true idea of what the product will be like
2. It can be used in presentations to gain trade buyers or funders
3. Your manufacturer can see how you expect the finished product to perform.

What you get

A fully working prototype to test, demonstrate and evaluate before beginning production.

5. Manufacturing

What we do

If you have already appointed a manufacturer, we will liaise with them directly to hand over the technical design files and full manufacturing specifications. We can answer any questions they may have about specific components and make small modifications as per their machining preferences. If you haven’t already appointed a manufacturer we have a number of trusted partners in the UK, notably Broanmain Plastics, who we highly recommend for their cost effective moulding solutions and technical expertise. We have also worked with some excellent manufacturers in the Netherlands, China and India covering plastics and rubber moulding, and metal working.

What you get

A smooth transition from design to production

6. User Testing

What we do

We identify the information you need, and who you need it from. We utilise different research methods such as interviews, observation, focus groups and questionnaires as appropriate to your customers and the testing required. We have also developed a range of creative research tools to support user testing at home, including a unique mobile app giving users a framework in which to easily share their feedback via digital media.

What you get

A detailed insight into your typical customer, along with verification of your product functions and/or ideas for improvement. User testing can be done at any stage of the design process. We strongly recommend involving users throughout to deliver products with maximum usability.
