An impartial, honest and common-sense approach
Developing ideas is inherently risky. Over 25 years in the business has exposed our team to the pitfalls, priorities and pointers to success. We’ve developed Make It™ to help innovators quickly assess viability and direct design. The process draws on design, manufacturing an commercial know how and follows BS8538, the specification for the provision of services relating to the commercialisation of intellectual property rights.
We specialise in Medical device design and other sectors with a high level or regulatory input, such as ATEX devices and toys.
We’re brutally honest, advising many people and organisations to stop and rethink early in the process. Make It™ is a small investment that can make a real difference.

Brand creation and development
Convincing people and organisations that what you’re proposing to develop is credible, useful and potentially profitable is critical to the success of new ventures.
Our team focusses on more than just corporate identity and logos. Clarity about what you stand for and what your product or service proposition adds to people’s lives is an important start-point for new brand development.
If your product or service concept has potential, an effective brand can add value that outlasts patents and may be a far more effective commercial tool.
New product design and development
How could it it work? Will anyone want it? How much could it cost to develop and manufacture? How can I get it to market? These are questions that our team investigates every day.
Our approach to product design with start-ups and VCs goes far beyond taking a brief and running with it. When you succeed, we succeed.
Our team follows best practice and validates ideas first. If they could work, we propose routes to market, development and production that make sense to you.
Packaging design and strategic development
Packaging can be crucial to the success of a product – it’s the first interaction your customer has with your product, and it influences split-second purchasing decisions.
“New-to-the-world” products need clear explanation to unfamiliar markets, and any improvements need differentiation.
All packaging needs to protect contents in the most sustainable and economic way.
Our packaging designers have worked extensively with boxes, cartons, pouches, bags, blisters, clam packs and moulded/fabricated constructions. We have the experience to suggest the right direction for you.
