WHAT WE DO

Services & Expertise

TO DEVELOP SOMETHING TRULY LIFE-ENRICHING, YOU HAVE TO START WITH A FOCUS ON HUMAN NEEDS, CHALLENGES AND DESIRES. WHICH ARE THE ISSUES WORTH SOLVING? ONCE YOU’VE INVESTIGATED AND IDENTIFIED THESE, YOU CAN BEGIN TO CRAFT, DESIGN AND TEST A SOLUTION. IT’S ONLY WHEN THE SOLUTION SOLVES THE PROBLEM PERFECTLY, THAT YOU CAN START DELIVERING IT.

 

THAT IS OUR HOLISTIC Design AND LEAN PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS.

SERVICE #01

Design Research

WE LEARN MORE ABOUT THE CUSTOMERS AND COMPILE A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF THE COMPETITOR LANDSCAPE TO IDENTIFY BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES. BY DISTINGUISHING THE PARTICULAR FROM THE ORDINARY, WE DERIVE RELEVANT INSIGHTS AND VALIDATE THEM.

USER ­ RESEARCH

To understand a customer, you have to enter into a personal dialogue. Through interviews, user workshops, observations and conversations, we learn about the daily routines and challenges of consumers to gain valuable insights about their needs.

MARKET RESEARCH

It’s important to take a step back to look at the bigger picture. We analyse design and market trends, review competitor products and services, and thoroughly explore the competitor landscape before compiling a solid business analysis.

INSIGHT SYNTHESIS

Formulating key insights from research findings helps to frame the problem and set the scene for a successful design process. We explore user touchpoints across all aspects of a brand or business to identify and define valuable market opportunities.

TESTING

We constantly test the hypothesis we derived during the design research. By prototyping our concepts, testing their usability and evaluating the user experience, we gain further insights for the next stage of the design process.

OUR TEAM OF CREATIVE EXPERTS IS ABLE TO TRANSLATE VISIONARY CONCEPTS AND INNOVATIVE IDEAS INTO TANGIBLE PRODUCTS – IN A COOPERATIVE PROCESS, WITH YOUR GOALS IN MIND. THIS PROCESS RESULTS IN A PERFECT SHAPE, HARMONIOUSLY COLOURED WITH THE RIGHT MATERIAL SELECTION – GIVING A WELL-GROUNDED CONCEPT AN ATTRACTIVE APPEARANCE. WE REVISE, SHARPEN AND POLISH EVERY DETAIL TO PERFECTION TO CREATE A SELF-CONSISTENT AND DESIRABLE PRODUCT WHICH IS AT THE SAME TIME ALREADY DESIGNED FOR INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION.

We work with the customer to generate and discuss various thoughts in creative sprints or by performing opportunity workshops. From there, we develop customer journeys and define the parameters for potential solutions to extract the best ideas.

DESIGN CONCEPT

To transfer ideas into visual forms, we explore shapes that best fulfil user needs and express company values. In constant exchange with the client, we reshape the product architecture, and build volume mock-ups or cosmetic models to generate a better product understanding and develop technical functionality.

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

We create user centered designs through an iterative product development process that is focused on HQ-visualisation and prototyping. Our expertise in mechanical and technical design means we create products that result in the highest degree of feasibility and are ready for production.
