We help our clients specify the design guidelines. The document determines the scope of work, goals, budget and timeline. It identifies the target receiver, market realities and concurrence.
We refine the offer together with the customer.
We determine the rules of our future cooperation. Once everything is agreed by both parties we sign the contract and start the creative work.
We define the user’s needs, usability context, use cases, market situation, ergonomics, production and logistic capabilities.
We respond to the specific challenges through our non-linear approach, flexibility and transparency.
We meet with our client for a workshop (yes, we do work remotely most of the time!) in order to discuss different aspects of the developed concepts to determine the form and features to be refined in further steps
a. We conduct an ergonomic study of the objects at an early stage of the design to provide flawless usability. We often supplement this phase with 3d printed mock-ups.
b. At this stage we already determine the mode of production of each element.
c. The concept presentation concludes with a brainstorming session with the client. The outcome of this phase is a clear aesthetic and functional vision to be developed in further steps.
We refine and process the concept approved in 01 Phase.
a. We usually work on software using NURBS surface modeling environment.
b. Built models allow efficient consultation with the constructors and technologists in order to avoid any production flaws. Parametric models ensure the constant control over the design.
We prepare the documentation adjusted to the chosen techniques that allows an efficient prototype creation.
We coordinate the making of the elements and get involved in the process.
We evaluate the prototype after conducting the tests. We assemble a testing group or do it by ourselves. All the feedback solutions and observations are written down in the report.
We implement the conclusions and observations that were formulated throughout the testing and update the design documentation.
We confer the implementation process with production facilities (for example the mould constructors).
We prepare the technical documentation to meet the requirements of chosen producers. It may consist of 2d drawings, CAD models, material descriptions and simple renderings showcasing chosen colours and material finishes.
We offer creating an implementation prototype which will enable verification of construction design, tolerances, technical details and assembly.
We complement the design products with a consistent visual identification. We create and deliver the press printed materials for the product launch or online campaign. We prepare the renderings according to the needs of the audience.
We deliver technical design for packaging. We propose the material options, colours, surface texture and typography, among other elements, so that the packaging is consistent with the product’s character and helps it to stand out from the crowd.
We create highly detailed models that may serve as an element product presentation at a conference, fairs or investor pitch.
