Designing the right product – FASTER.

As one of the top Product Design Companies in the US, businesses of all types look to us to enhance product development outcomes. As our product design portfolio shows, our development engineers work on projects in a wide range of industries. Recent product design projects include sporting goods design, mobile equipment engineering, consumer product development, firearms engineering, industrial product design, home appliance development, smart device engineering, IoT development, and industrial product engineering. Our heritage in manufacturing means that our product design engineers have the insight to consider the realities of production throughout the product design process. The result is a final product design that transitions easily into production.

All of our projects begin with a conversation. Contact Us today, and we will work together to define a product design plan to design the right product – faster.

Complete Product Design

As your product development company, we act as the industrial design and new product engineering department that you can rely on for complete new product design. Our development team carries projects from the early phases of feasibility study and specification development, through concept development, industrial design, initial engineering, design iteration, prototype development, through to the later stages of design finalization, design for manufacturer, and manufacturer engagement. From concept design through design for manufacturing, including manufacturing management, we have the experience to guide you.

Our Capabilities

  • Concept Development
  • Industrial Design
  • Preliminary Engineering
  • Prototype Development
  • Prototype Build and Test
  • Full Mechanical Engineering
  • Full Electrical Engineering
  • Optimization for Manufacturing
  • Regulatory Planning and Management
  • Manufacturing Management

Lean Development Approach

The product design and prototype development process can be complex. We use a proven product development process, typically starting with a Phase 0 project to answer initial questions about the project that will define all subsequent development phases. Phase 0 projects result in a clear path forward. Prototyping is fundamental to our development approach. We apply Lean Principles to development project similar to those featured in The Lean Startup by Eric Ries, which means every prototype serves a purpose and provides critical findings for iterative development. We employ cutting edge design and development tools, like Virtual Reality Prototyping.

Our Philosophy

  • Explore Multiple Concepts Early
  • Prototypes Should Have a Purpose
  • Iterate Quickly
  • Testing Feeds Iteration
  • Build-Test-Learn
  • If In Doubt, Build It (and test it)
  • Testing Should Be Documented
  • Speed Matters
  • Quality Matters
  • Collaboration Is Critical

Modern Development Tools

Established businesses and funded startups hire SGW Designworks to design and engineer new products. Our clients expect application of the latest technology throughout the development process. Our cutting edge software tools enable us to deliver world-class 3D models and CAD, high-fidelity renderings, and complete electronics design packages. In-house prototyping tools give us the ability to quickly produce a wide variety of prototypes and small-batch production units. On many projects, our designers use Virtual Reality as a tool for design reviews and design collaboration with clients. VR has become a valuable tool that saves time and money in the development process.
