You've got a great idea. You've got all the passion in the world. You've got a great vision for your business. You just need the right product design company who will partner with you to realise your goals. That's where D2M fits in.
D2M is a full-service product design company, based in the UK, with clients all over the world. D2M was founded in 2010 and has helped develop and launch hundreds of products across a range of industry sectors. Our team includes some of the UK’s most talented and innovative product and soft goods designers.
Not everyone with a great idea has the technical know-how or the marketing experience to turn that idea into a manufacturable and saleable product. While some of the products we design, patent and bring to market are our own, we also offer our expertise to start-ups, SMEs and entrepreneurs who could benefit from our expertise and our unique product development process.
We are innovators, designers and engineers, but we are not patent attorneys. For that reason, we work with a select group of trusted Chartered Patent Attorneys who get involved, when necessary, in the patent drafting and filing stages. Each one of these legal experts has been carefully vetted to ensure their integrity and that they align with our values.
A quick internet search will, unfortunately, turn up innumerable instances of people who have been ripped off by scammers posing as product design or invention promotion companies. So it is completely understandable if you approach D2M with a bit of trepidation. We would think it odd if you didn’t. After all, your idea is your baby.
D2M have been around for 12 years. In that time we have amassed an impressive portfolio of successes as well as references that we will be happy to share with you. We understand and respect your desire to protect your idea all the way through the development process. Rest assured your IP will be completely safe at all times.
Every step of the D2M development process is infused with transparency and honesty. If we think you have a great idea, we’ll say so and then keep you involved in every step of its design and development. Conversely, if we believe your idea is untenable or needs more thought, we’ll also tell you. We’re here to provide honest feedback and to help great ideas see the light of day.
We always fully respect the confidentiality of our clients’ ideas and will always and only work on the project for your benefit. We wouldn’t have a business after 12 years, unless we were entirely trustworthy with new, exciting ideas. If 3rd party participation is required at any stage we will explain why and get your approval before bringing suppliers, lawyers or anyone else in on the project.
D2M was founded out of a desire to support business founders with new product ideas from inception through to launch. Back in 2010 almost all product design companies only offered product development services. Very few product design firms, if any, support their clients with production, marketing, IP protection or any of the other vital areas necessary for commerically viable product development.
To provide this complete idea to launch process, we have built up a network of professionals who are experts in their field and also share our values. We integrate these expert services within our unique, bespoke process where they will add the most value to the project.
D2M grew rapidly, as this holistic approach was in great demand, and many other design firms have now expanded what they offer. D2M continued to evolve our product design and development services, staying one step ahead of the pack, and we also put our money where our mouth is and develop our own range of products, some of which launched with John Lewis. Founder, Phil Staunton, now splits his time between continuing to run D2M and educating, inspiring and supporting business founders through all stages of developing and selling a new product from his personal experience prototyping, manufacturing and marketing his pushchair range.
From concept viability to design development and prototyping, through to protecting your design and support with production, we are with you every step of the way. Find out more about the services we offer.
