Industrial design combines the fields of art, business, and engineering to design the products people use every day. In fact, this design field is responsible for the style, function, quality, and safety of almost every manufactured good. Usually designers specialize in one particular product category, such as automobiles and other transportation vehicles, appliances, technology goods, medical equipment, furniture, toys, tools and construction equipment, or housewares.

The first steps in developing a new design, or altering an existing one, are to determine the requirements of the client, the purpose of the product, and to the tastes of customers or users. When creating a new design, we often begin by researching the product user or the context in which the product will be used. We ascertain desired product characteristics, such as size, shape, weight, color, materials used, cost, ease of use, fit, and safety. To gather this information, we meet with clients, read design and consumer publications, attend trade shows, and interact with material suppliers and manufacturers.

Next, the designer prepares conceptual sketches or diagrams-by hand or with the aid of a computer-to illustrate his vision of the product. After conducting research and consulting with us, the designer then creates detailed sketches or renderings. Computer-aided design (CAD) tools are used to create these renderings. Computer models make it easier to adjust designs and to experiment with a greater number of alternatives, speeding and improving the design process. The designer also uses computer-aided industrial design (CAID) tools to create designs and machine-readable instructions that can direct automated production tools to build the designed product to exact specifications. Depending on your particular product, often, we will also create physical models out of clay, wood, and other materials to give clients a better idea of what the finished product will look like.

We will then present the designs and prototypes to our client and incorporate any changes and suggestions. Alongside the designers often we work with engineers and cost estimators to determine if a product can be made safer, easier to assemble or use, or cheaper to manufacture. Before a product is completed and manufactured, we request our customer to conduct usability and safety tests, using prototypes and then making adjustments based on those observations.
