The success of a project depends on having an effective process in place

We are passionate about our work and about teaching conceptual illustration and design for the transportation industry (utility and recreational vehicles) and related products (motorcycle helmets and other accessories). We like to apply our knowledge to different types of products. We believe that “Everything that deserves to be made deserves to be made well.”

  • Creation of visual traits unique to the client company (DNA application)
  • Visual guide for style development in conjunction with engineering, marketing, and design objectives (product positioning and mood boards)
  • Proximity-based styling and design analysis (as per Scott Robertson’s theory (ACCD))

What is industrial design ?

Industrial design

is a creative activity that aims to determine the formal properties of industrially produced objects. This includes external features (style), but primarily the structural and functional relationships that give an object a consistent unit, both from the manufacturer’s and the user’s point of view. (ICSID)

Industrial design

is a combination of applied art and applied science, whereby the aesthetics, ergonomics and usability of products may be improved for marketability and production. The role of an industrial designer is to create and execute design solutions towards problems of form, usability, physical ergonomics, marketing, brand development and sales.  IDSA – Industrial Designers Society of America

Industrial design

is also a creative activity whose will is to establish the qualities multifaceted objects, processes, services and systems in life cycles complete. The design has to do with products, services and systems conceived with tools, organizations and logic contributed by the industrialization (not only in the case of serialized processes).
