Industrial Design Firm
EXPLORE, PROTOTYPE, Build
Industrial designers see the world, not as it is, but as in might be. As young designers graduate and work with professionals from other disciplines, we get surprised to learn that the perpetual mental game of asking, “what if?” or “how might we?” is so uncommon. In recent years, the popular business media has come to appreciate this mindset as Design Thinking. The beauty of Design Thinking is that it not reserved for the elite few, but is a teachable skill to be gained by anyone with a growth mindset. We invite you to learn with us as we navigate the possibilities.
One thing we’ve learned is that no two industrial design projects are the same. We work with you to understand your vision for a better experience for your customers, define objectives, and find agreement on the exact steps necessary to move you closer to your goals. As the saying goes, “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme.” The Trig project rhythm follows a consistent arc of Explore, Prototype, Build.
EXPLORE: Finding Needs, Gaining Insights
Great product design doesn’t just happen with a sudden idea and a pen that brings it into reality. We believe it takes a thorough understanding of management objectives, consumer desires, and the competitive landscape, all revealed through intelligent customer research.
