We perform an in-depth study of various aspects relating to the project. We take a look at previous industry successes, current trends, user feedback, and other metrics that align with the project's scope.
Identifying the very specific problem you are trying to solve is imperative to success. The design problem serves as a prompt from which we can begin to formulate viable solutions.
We identify what existing technology might be required by the project. Paired with intellectual property research, this serves as a microscope revealing opportunities for innovation while solving our design problem.
We break down our design problem into a system of components that might be required to solve it. We articulate how these components might interact with each other within a system aimed at solving our design problem.
Ergonomics + Human Interaction
We perform an analysis of how our user groups might actually interact with and use the product. We take careful consideration of anthropometrics, accidental human error by the user, and possible new problems that our solution might bring to light.
We form a preliminary assessment of what existing techniques might be used in the production of the product. By identifying this in conjunction with other stages of research, it allows us to find opportunities for innovation in both design and production methods.
