Increasing the succes rate for the manufacturer
A product designer continuously tests product ideas and concepts during the design process. This can be done by sketching, CAD models, a fast physical models or complete prototypes. These tests are for the designers themselves or with users and other stakeholders.
All these tests help to validate the design during product development. This limits the R&D risks for a manufacturer and greatly increases a product’s chance of success.
What does an industrial designer cost?
Developing good, well thought-through products costs money. This is an investment to increase chances of a successful and profitable product. For us it is important that the project costs are in proportion to the potential profits for the client.
Because we have little overhead as a small studio, the vast majority of our fee are actual development costs.
Most design projects cost between € 5,000 (for feasibility study or exploratory assignment) and € 100,000 (for full development of a more complex product). We usually agree upon a fixed price with clients for research and concept design, and we make an estimate of the costs for development to realisation.
Product development is a tailor-made process. Get in touch with us to get a indication of development costs for your specific project!
