Industrial : Function integrated with style and desirability.
Form follows function – that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in spiritual union.
Frank Lloyd Wright
Industrial products are no longer just about function. Consumers expect to find function integrated with style and desirability.
We are experts at blending high specification products with stylish designs that are made with leading technologies and materials.
Members of our team have designed award winning helmet products for JSP, a range of accessories for Psion Teklogix and created an intrinsically safe digital camera, the iCAM 501 for Extronics among others.
Medical : Meticulous planning to get your product to market as quickly as possible.
Design is not just what it looks and feels like. Design is how it works.
Designing for the medical market requires a different approach with meticulous planning from the beginning. Pinpointing regulatory constraints, competitors IP, user requirements are all fundamental in getting your product to market as quickly as possible.
Oxford Product Design specialises in fusing creative flair with highly scientific and technical skills and an eye for detail. This makes us particularly well suited to more challenging products with high specifications.
Medical products include ophthalmic equipment for Keeler, the Pulsair Desktop Tonometer and PSL Classic Portable SlitLamp and the Bellingham and Stanley OPTI+ Series Handheld Refractometer.
Telecoms : Aesthetics and durability combined with cost and time sensitivity.
a designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
Antoine De Saint-Exupery
Telecoms design must combine cosmetic and durability requirements with an incredibly cost and time sensitive market working under extremely tight space constraints. As well as these constraints good radio performance is a pre-requisite, as is passing a tough approvals process.
We have a huge amount of experience in phone design, ranging from high-end luxury smart phones through to mass produced mobiles.
Consumer : Speed to market, brand presence, affordability and desirability.
The computer can’t tell you the emotional story. It can give you the exact mathematical design, but what’s missing is the eyebrows.
Speed to market, brand presence, affordability and desirability are all essential for product design in this sector.
We break all of our projects into a series of deliverables each with their own assigned budget and delivery timescales. This will make sure that the necessary decisions are made to keep the project on track and help you manage expectations. We are skilled at finding cost effective solutions to design problems and creating products that can easily be manufactured in high volumes.
