What is Industrial Design?

“Industrial Design (ID) is the professional practice of designing products, devices, objects, and services used by millions of people around the world every day.

Industrial designers typically focus on the physical appearance, functionality and manufacturability of a product, though they are often involved in far more during a development cycle. All of this ultimately extends to the overall lasting value and experience a product or service provides for end-users.

Every object that you interact with on a daily basis in your home, office, school, or public setting is the result of a design process. During this process, myriad decisions are made by an industrial designer (and their team) that are aimed at improving your life through well-executed design.”

What Services do We Offer?

Our resident Industrial Designer/Mechanical Engineer, Aaron Sherman, has an eye for product design that extends to every industry and pairs well with his engineering background.  Industrial Design can be thought of the study of interaction between objects and people, and all products involve some level of human interaction, even if it is only during assembly or manufacture. Thus, all products can benefit from a design review that takes into account the subtleties that drive good design in the form of appearance, functionality, ergonomics, and manufacturability.  At every step in our product development process, we strive to provide you with insights and guidance that will add value to your product.

We also offer services related solely to visually conceptualizing new product ideas so that they are easier to patent or market to investors.  This often takes the form of hand-drawn quick sketches, storyboarding, and refined concept renderings.  Whether for talking to investors, sharing your ideas, or for use in patent applications, images that display your ideas on paper can often be invaluable. Let us know if you are interested in working with us to develop your concepts in this way!
