Our experts know your industry

Our designers have worked on a number of projects involving a variety of sectors alongside design for manufacture, so they already have in-depth understanding of yours. Our professionals have worked in a variety of industries and have taken numerous courses to keep up with the newest trends in your field. Our specialists are likely to have already assisted in the design or production of anything similar to or identical to your product. The designers will be able to produce a concept that meets your needs, whether your products require a modern touch to help push them further or a professional covering to appeal to your target market.

Your research and development team are unlikely to have worked on many projects, but our engineers will be able to guide them and assist them in creating designs based on their knowledge in the sector as well as previous work with students.


Providing you with experts and giving you time

When you hire our designers, you’ll find that there’s already a team in place to handle your demands and any resources you might need. They will have a strategy in place ahead of time, as well as providing solutions to solve difficult challenges that may arise throughout the design process. Your research and development team will be provided with numerous tools to assist them in their task, as well as a project manager who will be able to keep track of all the individuals and activity being accomplished, allowing you to stand back and concentrate on other vital areas of the project.

You won’t have to worry about missing anything important because the project manager will connect with you on a frequent basis and provide you with plenty of insight about how the project is progressing.

You can do more by spending less

The primary benefit of engaging a creative team is for experience during the design phase while developing your design for manufacture, but there are also cost savings. You will save money by not having to keep an in-house research and development team throughout the year but only for the duration of your project if you hire our designers.

If you have a small R&D team, instead of investing in a full-time R&D staff, you can employ our designers to collaborate with them and produce more consumer-focused designs applying their expertise and knowledge. Therefore, you can spend the money saved on employing personnel for a complete in-house R&D team into a design consultancy by minimising the costs of hiring staff for a full in-house R&D team.

You can put the money you save into goods that will enhance our design for manufacture or your research and development team. You may even utilise this to assist in the marketing of your product, which our designers can advise you on based on current market trends since they have worked on numerous projects where they have assisted in the creation of marketing campaigns.
