Instantly Scale Your Development Capacity, Build Intellectual Property Rapidly And Maintain Your Competitive Edge.
Product development is a team sport. Designing, prototyping, engineering, manufacturing and marketing your product will require input and guidance from many people. While you’re in control, there are times when you have to rely on the advice of those around you. Wouldn’t it be great if you had a team of experts ready to go when you need it? Not all organisations and start-ups have the time, budget or expertise to build their own product design team from scratch. Nor do they wish to keep a full development team on the books after a product has been successfully launched.
Here’s where it makes sense to leverage the skills, resources and experience of an existing product design team. Product design and development consultancies exist around the world for this purpose. The best consultancies build exceptional, multi-disciplinary design teams, so you don’t have to! They are fully resourced, experienced, effective collaborators and importantly… they’re ready to go.
By choosing to partner with a fully-resourced product design team, you are able to:
- Instantly scale your product development capacity
- Access an entire team of product development professionals, not just one individual
- Access all the in-house resources available from 3D printers to computer simulation and more
- Gain peace of mind with an expert team on your side, taking your product from concept to launch
Where Does Your Business Need This Type Of Expertise?
Whether you’re a senior product manager, or fully funded start-up, here are some examples of how your business can leverage the expertise of a fully-resourced product design team:
- You want to bring more innovation to your marketplace
You may have a large range of products but looking to fill a gap or develop a hero product to help you develop a competitive edge. A different set of eyes and skills can help open the door to ideas you hadn’t thought of
- You have to fast-track a product to market
Product development is a journey of many cycles. However, sometimes you need to go to market quickly. Having a relationship in place with an existing product design team can help you make practical decisions, save headaches and reduce expenses down the track
- You want to maintain a competitive edge
Competition can come at you quickly. You need to be able to respond quickly. A design team will support you to remain responsive and nimble by challenging your thinking and bringing new ideas to consider
- You’ve just raised capital and want to start the development phase ASAP
If you’ve raised the funds for an exciting new product venture, you can access a large team with a vast range of skills to respond and to go to market with a prototype when you need it.
The Working Parts Of A Product Design Team That Make Up The Whole.
Often referred to as Product Designers, Industrial Designers bring ideas to life by delivering beautiful and functional designs. They blend practicality and creativity to design a product which is focussed on the needs of the end-user and is commercially viable. They’re the bridge between the engineer and end-user, as well as the engineer and marketer. They’re trained to think about interaction, ergonomics and aesthetic appeal.
Mechanical and Product Design Engineers.
Engineers are able to understand and develop detailed systems and mechanisms, manage complex assemblies in 3D CAD and perform part analysis and optimisation through calculations and virtual simulation. They have a deep understanding of production requirements, material specifications and manufacturing processes. Engineers are practical problem solvers who are primarily concerned with viability. They challenge ideas wherever they see a potential weakness and will be honest about the practical aspects of design.
Electronic Engineers are increasingly relied upon in our modern world. They are responsible for the design of electronic circuits, system architecture and hardware development – including PCB layout and design. This includes component selection, design of electronic controls and interface, embedded software development and management of electrical safety and compliance.
Graphic Designers, Brand & Marketing Experts.
These experts will keep brand consistency from the packaging through to the product, creating a seamless visual and sensory experience for the end-user. Learn how great product design simplifies your marketing strategy
Intellectual Property Advisors.
A good multi-disciplinary design team will have trusted Intellectual Property (IP) attorneys on hand to provide expert advice in patent, trademark and copyright law. They will work with both you and IP partners to develop and protect your IP assets and to understand the existing patents, trademarks and copyright that might impact your product development program.
