Ergonomic Product Design

As a Product Designer, improving the ergonomic product design of an existing product is a fundamental to your skillset

The Background

The brief from ZEROTAPE to 4D Products was simple but challenging, to improve on every aspect of ergonomics and usability over the current crop of commercial grade tape dispensers.

The Design Phase


The Result

Improved Comfort

ZEROTAPE was created with the end user in mind. The result is a tape dispenser which has been ergonomically designed. The position of the handle is strategically placed to minimise strain on the wrist. It also has a ventilated handle which is comfortable to hold and is significantly lighter than other tape dispensers on the market.

Increased Productivity

The foolproof click reload system means there is no time wasted changing tape rolls. ZEROTAPE also holds a tape which is longer than conventional tape (as well as lighter and stronger) so changes and disruption are kept to a minimum.
