Everyone designs. Designed By is an ongoing exercise in spotting clever solutions designed by regular people (i.e., non-designers) and refined by me. Observing natural behavior is part of the design process.
Coffee spills on your laptop, your cell phone takes a swim: Accidents happen. Most products aren’t designed to survive extreme conditions, but most can withstand some. Figuring out just how much sealing products will need is part of the design process.
We invited three of our interns, in industrial design, engineering and graphic design, into the spotlight to talk about their Bresslergroup experience. Read their intern’s eye view of life at 2400 Market Street.
Clients often commission us to rapidly (magically!) develop sophisticated prototypes as part of the product development process. They use these prototypes in a variety of ways: at trade shows to generate buzz; for gathering customer feedback; and most frequently, to conduct user research (often in the form of usability testing).
The first chapter in a yearlong quest to innovate the brewing process. Our ultimate goal: To simplify, streamline, and automate the typical home brew process using our multidisciplinary approach and employing Bresslergroup’s design process.
We’ve compiled what we think are some essentials for product designers and companies who want to get started developing their own sustainable product design process.
Patent illustrations are being replaced by photorealistic renderings, which decrease the scope of the claimed design and the value of the design patent. Bressler argues that if your design requires a photorealistic image to show it is different from prior designs, it is not innovative enough.
2013 was a year of structured creativity, tinkering with the Internet of Things, and major shifts in product design … here are our five most popular posts from the year according to you, our readers.
Design Thinking has caught on because it provides a common language for senior design professionals and their business counterpoints. But how about smaller companies who don’t have the budget for an innovation lab or the leeway to afford failed experiments? How can they get in on Design Thinking?
Studies for user testing medical devices are like dramatic reenactments — the more authentic, the better. But this can put participants at risk. What are best practices for balancing realism with safety while testing invasive injection devices?
