Product Design

We have the skills to take your ideas and turn them into stunning consumer products.

Bringing our dynamic approach to designing consumer products

We excel at creating innovative design solutions that capture the attention and loyalty of your target customers. From concept design to product realisation we collaborate closely with you to transform your ideas into captivating market ready products.

Our Consumer Product Design offering leverages our many years of expertise in design, engineering and user experience. We have designed a wide range of consumer goods, from video game consoles to household appliances and wearables.

Placing Your Customers at the Center of Design

We prioritise your future customers’ experience throughout the design process by adopting a human-centered approach. Understanding user needs, preferences, and behaviours allows us to create products that people genuinely love to use.

While user-centered design is crucial, we also consider manufacturing, time, and cost constraints. With our extensive manufacturing knowledge and experience, we are always confident in delivering successful product developments.

The Design by Datum approach to consumer product design

Our approach & design services provide an end to end solution for organisations, startups & inventors who are looking to turn their ideas into reality.

Concept and Feasibility

Idea Generation, exploration and selection.

Working quickly and creatively we use a range of ideation, sketching and modelling techniques to produce a concept package that works for you.

Design Detail / 3D Design

Defining features and design for manufacture.

We ensure your selected concepts are functional and manufacturable by utilising the latest 3D CAD software and techniques.


Functional prototypes for evaluation.

Create prototypes and weigh them against a testing criteria. After user trials, physical tests and simulations, we analyse the data and create design recommendations.  


We use 3D CAD software and techniques to refine your chosen concepts, ensuring they meet the highest standards of functionality, manufacturability, and performance.

Pre Production

Getting ready for market launch.

We create drawings, cut tools and liaise with trusted suppliers and manufacturers across the globe.


Assets to promote your product.

We’ll provide graphic mockups, within realistic settings that will allow you to showcase your new product effectively.

    Crafting Products Aligned with Your Brand

    We take the time to understand your brand values and the design language used across your business and products. Our aim is to design exceptional products that are both unique and unmistakably yours.

    We pride ourselves on being able to focus on the technical details but always keep the commercial picture in mind and will make sure you are happy with the project’s development every step of the way.

    What it’s like to work with Design by Datum

    We’ve worked across various industries, on a variety of different projects. Here are some of the nice words our clients have to say about working with us.

    3 easy steps to kick
    off your project


    You get in touch.

    Explain your product opportunity and potential project to us through a free initial consultation.  We’re happy to sign an NDA at this point.


    We build a project proposal.

    With your requirements understood, we propose a project plan including costs and timelines.


    Together we begin the project. 

    We will now work through the product development, communicating with you every step of the way


    Are we a good fit for your project? We’ve brought together some of the frequently asked questions to help you understand how we work.

    We can take a project from an idea all the way to full production & due to the staged nature of our work, we can begin working on the project from any point in the process.

    Each project has its own unique challenges & journey despite being part of the same design process. Our fees are for our time to design the product from beginning to end, collaborating with makers of prototypes and manufacturers for full production which we will quote on during the process. We would be glad to discuss your project in a face to face or virtual meeting which will then allow us to provide a proposal.

    You do! As long as there are no outstanding invoices, all data we create for your project is 100% yours.

    Despite the nuances of each project, the process mostly remains the same.

    Feasibility/Concept Design is where we use research techniques to develop a knowledge of the product sector & the necessary competitors before creating a set of concept design drawings which explain the form & function of the potential product path for you to choose from.

    3D Development is a stage which we take the knowledge gained from the previous stage to the 3d modelling software which allows us to create the data necessary for the next stage:

    Prototype & Test gives us the opportunity to create real representations of the final product using rapid prototyping methods which we can then test for fit & function with things like impact, PCBs, & environmental sealing.

    Pre Production is where we gather all the data created previously & liaise with our manufacturing partners to prepare for full production, providing quotes to the client & preparing them for our handover.

    Marketing support provides us with the opportunity to help with creating photo realistic computer aided renders for website, print, or e-commerce purposes.

    We can provide support to your crowd-funding project & will tailor a proposal to suit your timescales & on-boarding needs.
