Our design process starts with a design brief where the mission is defined. The main focus is always the end-user and our client’s brand. The second stage is a pre-study where challenges, functions and needs are being researched. A pre-study can include tryouts, workshops or interviews. Lastly, the results are being analysed and a specification of requirements is complied.
We visualise the ideas and thoughts that have emerged in the analysis. The different suggestions are thoroughly discussed and tested with the client and the end-users. The best ideas are selected for the ongoing work. To fully understand the challenges, this process sometimes has to be repeated a few times.
We manifest the ideas through physical models or CAD-models, clearly showing how the final product will come out. The result can be in the shape of photo realistic renderings or free form models.
The test models are being evaluated internally with the client as well as with users on the market. Thereafter, the solutions are being verified with corrections in CAD before construction is initiated.
To proof safe the intentions and the quality of the project, we work closely together with the client to reach rational and well grounded solutions for the production. We deliver drawings, 3D- material and product graphic.
After a while, we conduct a follow-up to make sure no problems with production have occurred. Smaller adjustments can be made to further utilize the product. Additional development takes off in the experiences we appropriated in the process.
Our clients represent many different fields, from engineering industries and health technology to consumer products. Our missions are about improving already existing products or generating entirely new ones. Regardless of the challenge, our passion and dedication is unquestionable. Helping our clients to better business and at the same time making everyday life better for the end-consumer are our key drivers. With a strategic mindset, a creative
outlook on design and a great know-how in materials and tech, we can also help you with internal processes, in the role of project- and/or process managers, or by putting together creative workshops. We are frequently lecturing, teaching and tutoring students at Umeå Institute of Design. Please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to tell you more about how we work and what we could do for you.
