At the core of our business, we are product design consultants. Sometimes referred to as a design agency, or design company.
We provide a product design department for hire, and our aim is to deliver outstanding results in a cost effective manner. No doubt your requirements are quite specific, that’s why we don’t offer a one size fits all service. We tailor everything we do to your needs. If you’ve already done lots of research, we wont insist on selling you some more.
The whole product design process is made up of a series of steps, which take you on a journey from idea through to manufactured product ready for sale. When delivered in a thoughtful and creative manner this process can create a spectacular end result. The product design process can be quite fluid, you need to keep an open mind and give the designer some freedom to get the best results.
When do 4D Products get involved? The answer is really up to you. You may be very early in the whole development process, only in possession of a hint of an idea or a hunch that an opportunity exists to do things better. That’s great, the project would probably start with some research and conceptual design.
You may have a clear vision of your new product, but need skilled designers to make it a reality. We’ll agree a design brief and specification, then deliver great results at a competitive, fixed price.
Your product may be on the market, but it needs a refresh, some improvements to really deliver your customers requirements. No problem, we can work with your existing in-house team and supply chain to make the most of the opportunity.
Product design is sometimes a journey into the unknown. Real value lies in creating and protecting new ways of delighting your customers. You need to be able to know your designers will stick with you and share some of the risk of product development. Take a look at our customer feedback to see what past clients think of what we do.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
STEP 1 – Get in touch with 4D and explain your requirements. If you need us to sign a non disclosure agreement to protect your unique idea, that’s fine.
STEP 2 – When we understand what you need, we will create a written proposal which details each stage of the design process that we would recommend you undertake, how much this will cost, and how long it will take.
STEP 3 – You can commission us to deliver one stage at a time, so you remain in control of your budget.
STEP 4 – We work very hard to deliver work that exceeds your expectations and delivers value to your business.
STEP 5 – Any IP generated is wholly assigned to you when the work has been completed and paid for.
