Questions we get asked a lot
If yours isn’t here, do contact us.
What are the main challenges of creating innovative products?
How many prototypes does it take to design a product?
We recommend creating a simple prototype at the start of your project and using it to establish form and functionality. The fundamental fact is that you can’t know all of the answers and all of the needs of the identified users before you start.
When we say we make products happen – we really mean it. We use cost effective components and build your prototype in our bespoke production studio, using it to collate feedback from clients and identified users. Using this information we can adapt your prototype working closely to your defined specific regulatory requirements. Incremental changes will take your product closer to market.Contact
What are the costs of developing a product?
We work with you to understand your objectives for your product. This is why we ask lots of questions – what is your timeframe, do you require a prototype to demonstrate functionality to potential investors and what is the scale? We put together an initial research team to review feasibility and create a bespoke Project Plan. The costs of a design project vary greatly and depend entirely on both your needs and requirements and those of your customers and suppliers. What are your regulatory challenges and what is the scale of your market?
In order to ascertain these requirements and to ensure that the design process is built on firm foundations we make sure that we capture your requirements and provide the best possible solution. We do this by identifying specific needs and tailoring a proposal specifically for the project which will include an agreed project brief, timescales and costings.Contact
How do I protect my idea?
We send you two copies of a signed NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement) before you disclose your idea. This is a legally binding agreement that prevents us from disclosing the idea to any third party, without seeking your approval first. Each party retains one copy of the agreement signed by both parties. The NDA is a way of demonstrating that your idea is not in the public domain & so should not be disclosed.Contact
What timeframes are involved in designing a product?
The timeframes are dependent upon the needs of the clients, the regulatory requirements and the scale of the objectives. Once we have a clear understanding of your project details and requirements we will produce a bespoke proposal including an agreed project brief and accurate costings. The project proposal will also contain estimated timescales; these are estimated only as the progress of the project is very reliant upon feedback from the client, something which changes from project to project.Contact
