The Story

Avi Bear came to D2M with a challenge: how to design a product that could keep up with even the messiest of babies. We knew it was time to put our infant product design expertise to work. After some brainstorming, we came up with the idea for an absorbent shoulder pad that could easily attach to any outfit, keeping parents dry and happy.

One of the unique features of the Avi Bear shoulder pad was its repeating pattern on the textile. We knew that it needed to be eye-catching and playful to appeal to both parents and babies. So, our textile designer worked diligently to create a repeating pattern that incorporated cute bear faces and other fun elements. The design was not only adorable but also practical as it helped to hide any potential stains.

Another important aspect of the product was the packaging. We wanted to make sure that the key unique selling points were communicated clearly and effectively. We designed the packaging to showcase the product’s absorbent properties, the soft and comfortable texture, and the convenience of the adjustable strap. The packaging also featured high-quality product photography to show the shoulder pad in use, and a clear window that allowed customers to see the product up close.

To ensure the highest quality materials were used for the product, we sourced from trusted suppliers who specialised in infant products. We conducted extensive research and testing to make sure that the materials used were safe, durable, and soft against baby’s skin.

But the most important part of the design process was the user testing with parents and babies. We conducted focus groups and in-home testing to get feedback on the product’s functionality, comfort, and overall design. Based on the feedback, we made adjustments to the design to ensure that it met the needs of both parents and babies. We also made sure that the product was easy to clean and maintain, which was a key concern for many parents.

We knew that the product needed to be both functional and stylish, so we worked closely with Avi Bear to develop a design that would be both. The result? A cute and cuddly bear-shaped pad that would make even the messiest moments a little bit more fun.

In conclusion, the Avi Bear shoulder pad was a successful collaboration between D2M and Avi Bear, combining our infant product design expertise with their vision for a functional and stylish product. The result was a product that exceeded expectations in terms of functionality, design, and user experience.
