Product Design Services
We have extensive experience in production management, quality control, manufacturing in a range of materials and processes both locally and offshore. Our existing relationship with suppliers means that we can produce you high quality designs in a cost effective manner, no matter your project or budget. An overview of the design stages we can assist you with to bring your concept into a reality are listed below.
Stage 1: Design Brief & Creative Conceptualisation
We’ll work with you to establish a detailed brief, which outlines all your required design features, project/products outcomes, estimated costing and production options. From this process, we’ll churn out unique and creative concepts that are practical in approach and ensure that any idea can be effectively realised in the following stages. We also offer additional options in research, exploring market trends, competing products and evaluating design in the market place.
Stage 2: Design Refinement & Documentation
Next, we’ll take the agreed concept from Stage 1 and prepare it in detail for final design documentation. This includes photorealistic rendered images in multiple views, engineering drawings, 3D CAD files and any additional supporting materials required.
Stage 3: Prototyping & Assessment
Using the CAD files and engineering drawings produced in Stage 2, we’ll produce either a rapid prototype or a production sample prototype, both for realisation of form and final design refinement.
We can also offer you advice on suitable production methods based on the materials and finishes required for the design, and source manufacturers, suppliers and quotes for your prototype and/or final production. Tooling costs (if required) are also quoted in production costs.
Stage 4: Final Production & Product Delivery
The approved sample from Stage 3 is then used as a guiding design for all production pieces. We can provide you with the required production management services if desired.
This stage also includes the creation of packaging design and the confirmation of shipping and delivery methods and lead times.
Need to import production material made outside Australia? No problem – we can assist you with this too.
