Product Development

Product Development is a process of turning an idea into a desirable, manufacturable product that has the best chance of success in the marketplace. D2M has an expert team of engineering, textile and consumer product designers who can do this for your concept. We cover a broad range of market sectors including: mother & baby; medical; consumer; sports equipment; underwater and mechanical products. We have particular success in the mother and baby sector with superb contacts of retail buyers in this market segment. Read more about our case studies…

The Process

The product development process is quite involved and includes: research, ergonomics, styling development, brand consideration, sizing, engineering, material consideration and design for manufacture to name just some parts of the process. Our team are experienced in all of these areas and you can find out more about the designers here: D2M’s Team

D2M’s design process is uniquely focused on 2 main elements: ensuring that the design is protectable and developing a concept presentation for minimum capital risk while still ensuring that the concept has been designed diligently and professionally.  We are unique in that our design engineers work alongside Chartered Patent Attorneys to ensure cohesive design development and patent protection. This makes D2M the number 1 choice for entrepreneurs or established businesses where strong IP protection is crucial to a successful product launch.

The Cost of Product Development

The price of product development varies as we tailor the process to meet your requirements. It is best to call us or set up a free consultation to discuss this but, to give an indication, it is likely to cost upwards of £800 depending on the complexity of the product and detail of the presentation.
