How Do We Design Products

Research

User-centered design is key, acknowledging  the core problems first 

Research is an integral part of developing a product and is often what will make or break a new product, in terms of its success in the market and user. At Catalyst Prototypes we delve into the topic at hand as much as we can to ensure we fully understand the field we are designing in. Our common methods of research involve user interviews, product breakdowns, user analysis and others.

Conceptualisation

Effective solutions and idea shortlisting to narrow our line of enquiry

At the conceptualisation stage we take all the information gathered in the research stage and develop a number on designs and concepts that we later shortlist to a few, that will be developed on further. During this stage we will also develop quick and crude models of the concepts; this helps to conclude what concepts are viable or not and is how we shortlist the designs.

Prototyping

Utilising rapid-prototyping methods for realistic testing

Once we have shortlisted a concept we will take it into CAD develop a 3D model of the concept. From here we can use our 3D printing expertise to develop functional prototypes that can replicate how the product would work if manufactured. Some products can go straight into 3D printing low volume batch manufacturing.
