What I Do

Product Design Services

I offer a full range of development services across the complete product design process; from initial concept development through to final manufacture.

Working with a diverse range of clients, I undertake both full product development projects and provide specialised support at key stages. Every project is planned around your unique requirements and my design services are tailored to provide the best possible support.

By understanding the needs of people, the market and business, we identify opportunities, reduce risk and plot new design strategies.

Product Development

By selectively evaluating concepts against the design goals, we develop products with the best technical and commercial prospects.

Robust engineering allows us to create working designs faster, improve performance, and lower production costs.

To enable this, design development follows an iterative process, where concepts are rigorously tested and improved to ensure they meet target specifications.
