We are a product development consultancy that specializes in industrial design, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, software engineering, design research, and prototyping. To put it in simpler terms, we make products that look good, work better, address the needs of users, and make a substantial impact on the market, all the while meeting the demands and needs of our clients. We not only come up with great ideas and concepts, we make them work.
At Credo, you will find a group of avid problem solvers. Our individual experiences are broad and diverse. Our involvement with a wide variety of product developments allow us to apply what we learned to each new project. We call this compounding experience. We all share the hunger to never stop learning, which keeps us on the cutting edge of product development. We are creative and we are innovative. We are equally comfortable creating innovative ideas as we are turning them into something that works. Bottom line, we believe, hence the name.....
From concept sketching to realistic renderings, we excel at every aspect of the design process.
We have a deep understanding of multiple processes so we can apply the correct solution for our clients to ensure they are getting the most value from the product.
We utilize a variety of research methods to ensure quality product concepts and solutions.
We use prototyping during all phases of each project to ensure the development is as efficient as possible. We have several 3D printers and connections with supply partners for all your rapid prototyping and pre-production needs.
From user interfaces to physical products we consider both cognitive and physical human factors and ergonomics to evaluate design problems and solutions.
Kickoff Each project we take on begins with a kickoff meeting. We discuss the project to help determine what exactly it is you are looking for. By doing this, we are able to generate a proposal and set deadlines. Our design process can then be tailored specifically to your needs and wants.
Explore Uncovering the needs and wants of the user is one of the most important steps in our design process. By understanding the demographic, we are able to uncover problem areas within existing designs and create something that works better for the user and in turn, sets itself apart from the competition. We utilize several different research methods that help kick start our design process and get the creative juices flowing.
Create During this phase of the design process, our team of Industrial Designers and Engineers collaborate to create several concepts. Our team uses the knowledge they learned during the exploration phase to begin ideating with quick sketches that will later be refined into full concepts.
Refine Our multi-disciplinary team collaborates and evaluates our current design concepts in order to take our solution to the next level. During this phase, feasibility and functionality issues are resolved and preliminary concepts are transformed into solid solutions that go above and beyond the needs of our clients.
Deliver Final concept prototypes are created. Final refinements are made. Our team is well trained in ensuring our concepts are designed for manufacturing (DFM) so the transition from prototype to manufacturing is a smooth one.
