Research and development

 

We are constantly updating our library of

We are avid learners and always searching for new

We attend fabric trade shows and regularly
update ourselves on the latest fashion and product
design trends. We always conduct market research before

Design

We are designers by trade and heart.
This is the breadth and body of what we do and love.
We are dreamers, visionaries, imaginaries, and builders.
We’ll help you bring your design concept to life starting with
sketches, computerized designs, and finally,
executable tech packs that manufacturers can use to
create prototypes.

We’ll guide you through the entire development process
from first proto to final sales samples. We’ll handle factory
correspondence, corrections to prototypes, mold specs, and
revised tech packs. We will help you decide on which country
to manufacture in and which factory to work with.

Consulting

We are experiencing the rapid change that digital media has brought to the product design industry. It has created opportunity to thousands of new brands, and the market has become extremely competitive. Niche markets are emerging and direct-to-consumer selling channels are more accessible to small businesses and start-ups.

We offer consulting services that help guide you through the process of creating a new brand in the digital marketplace. We can help you identify your target market, retail price point and selling strategy so that your brand fulfills a gap in the market. We will work with you to clarify what makes your brand and product unique and distinguishable from your competitors. We’ll guide you through the entire process from brand concept to production. Already have your own business but need help with the brand imaging and product design direction? We can work with you to create a new design direction that you feel inspired by.

how does the process of making a product work?

The design and development process can be broken
down into the following categories:

Design

Research: After discussing your brand and your projects needs, we research the market to see what is currently selling that is similar to your idea as well as unique shapes, details, and features that we think would work for your project. We will send you an Inspiration Packet for you to review and for us to discuss so that I can get a better grasp of your idea.

Initial Design: We provide initial concept designs (for each item you want designed) with options to choose from and will submit these to you for feedback.

Final Design: Once you’ve chosen a design(s) we will proceed to creating
a final design that is fully rendered with color and materials and includes
multiple views and details about the product’s function.

Tech Pack: Once the final design has been approved we will proceed to
creating the Tech Pack. The tech pack includes specifications, measurements, detailed information about the pattern and the materials, and all other essential information necessary for the manufacturer to develop a prototype/sample of the design.
