Insights & Design

In order to design a useful and innovative product, we first seek to understand your target audience as deeply as possible through design research. The insights we uncover from the investigation of their needs and way of life drives the creative generation of ideas that we undertake and develop into design concepts. In conceptual design, we envisage a wide spectrum of potential solutions, all aimed at delivering outstanding consumer experiences.

 
 
 
 

Development & Delivery

By establishing the requirements for your product to thrive in the market, we initiate the detailed development of your product, transforming it from a concept to a manufacturable design. We invest the care required to design a product that is sound in form and function, that positively engages consumer's emotions and works seamlessly. Through diligent evaluation, prototyping, iteration, and visualisation, we ensure that the design is well refined in all aspects to meet not only technical compliance requirements but also consumer aspirations.

Form prosthetic covers

Form Prosthetics is transforming the loss of a limb from a stigmatised state into one that attracts awe and admiration. We worked with Orthotic Prosthetic Solutions in Western Australia to develop the custom prosthetic covers that are beautiful in form, and versatile in fit. 

The covers are personalised to fit each amputee, and embody a variety of artistic 3D and printed aesthetics that suit different tastes and personalities. They are additively manufactured in high-grade polymers, include a patented system that allows a flexible yet robust fit, and are intuitive to wear through magnetic locks. 

In addition to form's design, we have and continue to, oversee the manufacture and assembly of each custom cover, their packaging, and distribution. We also continue to develop and conduct Form's marketing strategy.

MaxLight LED Lighting

We worked with MaxLight in Melbourne to design numerous commercial lighting products including the Slice LED, a commercial light fitting suitable for both Surface Mounted and Ceiling Recessed applications. The light fitting reduced shipping and warehousing costs through an optimised design rationalising parts across various assemblies. The Slice LED has become one of Max Light's most popular products selling tens of thousands of units annually. We continue to work with Max Light in the industrial design and facilitation of the manufacture of new products.

Riverina Allweld Ute Tray Bodies

Steel fabrication modeling & design for Riverina Allweld worked to improve workflow efficiency on the shop floor while allowing for simple modifications to Tray body designs as required. The design was setup to achieve fast customisation to suit various vehicles and add-ons as requested by clients. Using 3D CAD design models containing all components including sheet metal, weldments, fixings & shelf items such as locks; we can ensure our designs fit up and work as an overall unit prior to going to fabrication. Images created in this process can also be used to market these products at these early stages of development for both tendering and client approval. The resulting CAD files can then be exported directly to workshop cutting and bending machinery ensuring a perfect outcome for the fabricator.

Solid State for Men

Solid State Cologne is a portable alternative to traditional spray cologne. The Melbourne based business approached us to redesign their cologne containers to embody the level of quality that their brand and products carry. Working with Solid State and precision manufacturing facilities, we designed a highly durable container produced in die-casted Aluminium.

The container is of a minimal yet bold form with generously chamfered edges. It slides open to reveal the wax cologne and closes with a secure click. The highlight of the container is it's satin-finish achieved through electrophoretic deposition, resulting in a remarkably smooth surface, delightful to touch.
