Have an idea you'd like to bring to market? 6Design can provide direction with your business plan, executive summary, design strategy and finding investors. Weíve been through all of it and itís far from an easy road. Let 6Design hold your hand during the entire adventure and guide you to success.
Having been product managers before, we have first-hand experience dealing with all facets involved in handling your product line. Beyond developing new designs for your business, we can assist with market strategy, margin goals, distribution methods and portfolio management.
Tossing around an idea but donít want to dive all the way in yet? 6Design will work with you to evaluate your market research in order to formalize a detail product brief. From there, we'll start sketching general concepts that detail function, manufacturing methods and aesthetics. Doing so will give you the information you need to determine whether or not to proceed further with your product idea.
Based on client requirements, we will focus on the aesthetics, ergonomics and functionality in developing a new product. Considerations include ease of production, manufacturing and tooling costs, shipping costs, product life-cycle, repair and cohesiveness with existing visual brand language.
Once a design concept has been selected, we move to detail engineering of the product. Using Solidworks as our main CAD package, we facilitate the manufacturing process by providing detailed diagrams of the product or system layout, tolerances, material specifications and generate strength reports.
Marketing and Sales Visuals
When pitching your idea to a company or your sales and marketing team, itís helpful to show photo-realistic images. A simple picture can go a long way in helping to explain the concept, including the intended function and even the textures and materials used. We use advanced rendering software (V-Ray, Keyshot, etc.) to create detailed and realistic renderings for use in presentations, marketing collateral and product packaging.
