1) IMAGINE IT (YOU NEED AN IDEA)
• We introduce you to a unique product development process centered around materials.
• We inspire new ideas by cross-pollinating and re-imagining materials and processes over a variety of industries (medical, industrial, consumer, aerospace, automotive).
• We use the emotional experience of interacting with materials and the characteristics of those materials to provoke new ideas (experience-driven).
• We bring to your table 20+ years of experience, a library of thousands of materials, a broad spectrum of key supplier relationships and collaborations with material & research resources across the globe.
• Blue sky design and idea generation
• Brainstorming (Hosting/Facilitation vs. Internal)
• Material, process and technology research
2) CONCEPT ENGINEERING (YOU ALREADY HAVE AN IDEA)
• We work in-house and with material and technology providers to curate multiple development directions for a single concept (concept engineering).
• We provide industrial design with respect to brands, trends and culture.
• We respect the unique goals and needs of both design and engineering.
• We create proof of concept prototypes.
• Concept Engineering
• Industrial Design
• Prototyping/Proof of concept
• 3D modeling
3) CONCEPT INTEGRATION (YOU ALREADY KNOW HOW YOUR IDEA WORKS)
• We create a clear idea of the materials, technologies and processes involved with your product(s) and connect you with the appropriate suppliers.
• We integrate more efficient and/or compelling materials and processes.
• We help you understand how to manufacture your product
• We integrate new technologies/materials into your existing processes/products
• We save you money with smarter design and smarter use of materials/processes
• Material application
• Manufacturing expertise
• Cost savings
