Shaping Design DNA
1. Identity and Competitiveness
We invent, rethink and design cutting edge products perfectly tuned to fit to market and focus groups on global and local markets. We create brand identity and develop strategies for enhanced competitiveness.
2. Vision and Innovation
For almost all projects our customers ask for a strong focus on innovation and new usability features. This is one of our core skills. Particularly for cut throat markets we developed a specialized tool - the Usability Innovation Workshop (UIW) with a strong focus on usability features, user experience and future users’ needs. Due to our intensive cooperation with global player companies in Germany, China and the United States we share knowledge about the different markets and users’ needs and constantly explore new global and domestic design innovation opportunities.
3. Realisation and Full-Service.
Each customer has a different set of facilites and capabilites to develop a product up to mass production. Thanks to our long term experience and collaboration activities, we are able to add what is individually needed to successfully launch the product - no matter if mechanical engineering, prototyping, tooling, series production, market analysis, new brand and innovation strategies, packaging, project management or many more.
