SLIMDESIGN’s expertise covers the entire development process, we love to solve a difficult challenge! Explore our service options below. 

Start-up Support

 
We support startups with our free advice, templates and tools. We help them convince potential investors by providing insightful information, creating stunning visualizations and producing prototypes. We are not the right fit for every project, we only accept clients if we can add value. Do you want to receive our insights into your project?

Design & Innovation

 
Innovation is key for any business which wants to stay ahead of its competitors. When we co-operate, we see ourselves as part of your team. We provide our product development knowledge, expertise and network to make your project a success.

R & D Support

 
We know how bureaucracy and protocol can kill corporate innovation. We provide a lean and start-up orientated approach by supporting your in-house team or working independently. From an idea to cosmetic and functional prototypes in 3 months.

Free Design Consultation

 
We offer a free design consultation to discuss your project specifics, potential obstacles and provide advice on the possible routes to take your product to market.

      

 

The process only matters when it delivers the desired results

The SLIMDESIGN Framework

 

At SLIMDESIGN we have developed an integrated, lean, development process that allows design, mechanical and electrical engineering to be seamlessly interwoven. By working with a dedicated project team, we can be more efficient, flexible, and faster than traditional product development methods.

 Strategy & Insights

 

The foundation of every great product is a strong design strategy. Here at SLIMDESIGN we create added-value through our analysis and research of competitors, markets, use case scenarios, customer journeys, stakeholders, trends and evolutions.

Specification

 

The product specifications are determined based on product requirements, strategy, and insights. This will give you and us a detailed insight into the direction the project will take, and a project roadmap can be laid out, ensuring we get the desired results in the fastest way possible.

Conceptualization

 

We create designs that complement the product’s function, are minimalistic, and excel in detailing and quality. During this phase, a broad spectrum of possible design solutions will be generated through an iterative brainstorming and sketch process. With our iterative design methodology, the best solutions will transition into possible concepts and prototypes. Throughout the course of the design process, we make sure to work with realistic volumes for all internal components, ensuring a smooth transition from concept into a final feasible design.

Engineering

 

We strive for simplicity in our design and engineering. We analyse and assign priorities to the product requirements in order to establish a development direction. We use our creativity, expertise and experience to generate different mechanical solutions. The most promising solutions are prototyped and tested. We continue generating different variations until we find the optimum balance between form, function, cost price, production and assembly.

Implementation

 

In the final stage of the product development process we ensure the design is ready for mass manufacture. With a broad network of possible suppliers we have the knowledge to match the design with the most suitable production partner. We manage the tooling, validate the part samples and simultaneously support the certification process. When production has started, the quality of the products is ensured by a combination of quality assurance management and quality control during and after production.

Tuned to suit your needs

 

The entire process is always optimized for each individual project, depending on the project requirements and how we can best utilise our in-house knowledge. Our tried and tested methods of working have been awarded numerous design awards and innovation prizes and we always make sure our resources are utilised as efficiently as possible.
