Not only have you got a killer product, you’ve got a great design idea, too.  It’s sleek, modern, and creative while still adhering to industry expectations.  Industrial design, however, is more than just coming up with a cool appearance for a product.  There are many factors that have to be considered when coming up with an innovative new product design.

Will the Product Work?

You might be surprised to learn how many companies will release a product that looks incredible but functions horribly.  That new, high-resolution display screen is also draining the battery three times faster.  The compact welder certainly is more portable than any other version, but it’s also nearly impossible to safely light it.  A car has a sleek new engine design, but the cost of auto repair has skyrocketed because it’s nearly impossible to gain access to anything.

Is it Cost Effective?

Even if the product still works with a unique design, the cost of making that happen may be prohibitively expensive.  The increase in sales as a result of the cool new design may be overshadowed by the dramatic costs involved in producing it.

Will It Break?

Products that will be easily damaged will quickly be abandoned in favor of more durable ones.  It’s important to understand both the manufacturing of the product and the expected environment for its use.  Touch screens, for example, might be ideal in an office environment but easily damaged in an industrial plant.  Products deigned to be used in an environment with moisture or extreme heat must be able to handle those conditions.  If they can’t, your product is doomed to failure.

Is it Safe?

There is no worse outcome to a product release than if people are hurt by your product. StudioRed ensures that not only will your product be designed efficiently and effectively but safely as well.
