PRODUCT DESIGN SPECIFICATION PROJECT BRIEFING
THE START OF THE PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
The best way to start a project is to fully understand the problem. This is why we welcome a face-to-face initial meeting with our clients, to discuss your idea and the expectations for your project.
RESEARCH & ANALYSIS
MARKET RESEARCH AND FEASIBILITY
We investigate the key issues that may influence the product design specifications: from marketing analysis to the usage cycle, we explore the core factors that will help shape your product.
PRODUCT CONCEPT DESIGN
STUDY OF THE FORM AND FUNCTION OF THE IDEA
We work together to produce a range of innovative concept designs. These are then presented to you in an interim product design and development review, allowing you to choose in which direction your product will progress.
COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN
Once the form and function is confirmed, we can develop the technical details of your product. This includes validating the manufacturing feasibility of the product, the system design and the internal component integration.
PRODUCT DESIGN VISUALIZATION
FROM CAD TO 3D RENDER
Through our product design consultancy, we produce photorealistic images, professionally illustrating the design and function of your product. This is delivered as a high quality visualization package, providing you with professional presentation material with which to approach industry.
This type of prototype design demonstrates the overall shape and size of the product and does not usually feature any working parts. The materials will not be the materials that would be used if the product were to be mass produced. This type of product prototype can either be left as the raw material or painted to represent the finished product.
This type of prototype product demonstrates the key functionality and resolves the main technical aspects of the design. It is not intended to look like the final product and will make use of existing ‘off-the-shelf’ components, where possible. A proof of concept prototype is unlikely to be made from production grade materials.
This type of product prototype demonstrates the key functionality and also provides a representation of how the mass-produced product would appear. This type of prototype will largely be built from bespoke parts; however ‘off-the-shelf’ parts will still be used, where appropriate. It is likely that materials close to the production grade will be used, however, in situations where this would not be economically viable for a one-off prototype, substitutes may be used.
