Ideas can be worth their weight in gold, but unless you have the ability to create the functional product on your own, you are probably going to need some help. This is the situation I found myself in when I was working up some new technology to implement in my own firm.
A friend suggested that I contact a product design organization to get some assistance. Not really knowing what the position entailed, I skeptically contacted a popular company and got production underway.
Product design company is something that I knew very little about when I was setting out to implement my strategy. Sure, I had all of the details worked out regarding how it would help me, but I couldn't foresee the tasks that were associated with actually creating the product to operate on an efficient and functional level.
Ultimately, the decision proved to be the right one as the fees of the design team were far less than the amount of capital I saved in the concept's implementation. If you have an incredible idea and are not sure how to actually create a physical or conceptual design, you should find a product designer that can help your idea become a reality.
Understanding Function and Form
A great industrial designer should first do their best to articulate how "function" and "form" come into play for the entire project. By establishing what you need the product to do and how it will do it, a professional in the field can discuss the various ideas that they may have in making a product "work". Their expertise in the field can be a valuable asset moving forward.
Just about any device, we use in our daily lives went through the product design process. From the moment an idea is created, sketches and design ideas are delivered, as the designer begins searching for the various ways to make the technology possible.
