Product Design

What is product design?

Product Design is about defining a problem and then thinking about all the possible solutions to that problem. It is about how a product looks, feels, what materials are used, functionality, performance etc.  Product design encompasses a variety of areas of expertise. This can be from graphics designers, industrial designers, user researchers, design engineers, interface designers, electronics engineers - anyone who is involved or needs tobe involved with some part of a project. 

Essentially, product design is about the specification for a part or group of parts that make up the design of a product.  This may include things like: 

  • How the  product is required to perform
  • The environment the product will contend with
  • Its lifecycle
  • The products size
  • Materials
  • Finishes
  • How does it feel?
  • The overall look

Product Design Process - in Brief

At this early stage, we will talk about your users and your requirements. We will discuss all the critical issues for your idea, aswell as creating a number of concepts and ideas for us to talk about with you. This is the most critical stage of the process.

Rapid Prototyping

When we have a viable concept or idea, we will  rapid prototype it so you can see it in real life. 3D printing is generally the method used in the early stages of a design.

We will then develop and tweak the concept further. We have many rapid prototyping processes at our fingertips, so we will advise on the correct one for your design.
