What is industrial design?

Industrial designers transform ideas into physical objects. We work with you to research and develop your ideas to create a plan to make them physical reality. This might be for a one off prototype or piece of furniture, or for a production run of 100 000 units.

What is a brand and branding?

A brand is a person’s gut feeling about a product, service, or company. It’s not what you say it is. It’s what THEY say it is. Your brand is another way of saying your reputation.

The purpose of branding is to build your businesses reputation and grow trust between you and your clients. Branding is about combining good strategy with good design to create compelling symbols that ease customers buying decisions.

Why do we offer both branding and industrial design?

A product is your businesses most tangible realisation of your brand. It is therefore essential that your products represents your business goals, purposes and values.Because of this close tie up between your products and your brand, it makes perfect sense to combine these services to ensure that your brand and your products are speaking the same language to convert customers to fans.

Would we be a good fit?

We do our best work for businesses and non-profits that look to have a positive impact on society and the environment. Ones that consider the impact of their products when in use but also once they’ve been thrown away. The impact their brand and products have not just on their bottom line but also on the environment, their staff and on the communities in which they live.

You get the best from us when we are able to be involved and influence the direction of a project as early as possible. We believe that the earlier we are involved in the direction setting, development and design phase the better the outcome will be for you.

Design and development takes time. There are many steps, iterations and deadends that need to be explored before the best solution is discovered. If you need a one shot design done fast with no opportunities for refinement, development and correction we are probably not for you.

If you want your design to be refined, developed, researched, considered, tested, developed and refined some more until it is right, than we would love to chat.
