You’ve got this great idea but just can’t seem to get it onto paper. It’s a common challenge for most people but there is a simple solution. Here at Prototype Monster we have a great deal of experience when it comes to getting that concept onto paper. The process includes professional hand drawings – sketches – that help get the ball rolling.
Long before your idea can go to market, there are several considerations that have to be factored into the journey from idea to reality. It is on this journey where your idea is examined and the commercial viability is determined. The person who creates the visual snapshot of your idea is an Industrial Designer. The snapshot produced will cover a lot of ground including:
- Factors driven by the market segment being targeted
- Your design wishes as the inventor
- Manufacturing/design considerations
The artwork created at this stage by the Industrial Designer is called industrial design sketching. It is also known as Conceptualization, Ideation or just simply Sketching.
Once your idea is sketched, it takes on life. It allows the designer to explore multiple forms and design options. This eliminates the creation of the first idea that comes to mind as there are many alterations, modifications and tweaks that are going to happen on the journey between idea and reality. It is at this point where parallel development of several concepts can take place and could lead later to a complete family of products. The sketching process also gives you a means to track the way in which your idea design was developed from the first rough sketches onto the more refined sketches that resulted from input from others that may have altered the design.
The sketching phase will provide a transition into the modeling phase. This is where 3D CAD Modelers will create an actual 3D model of your idea based on the sketches.
Prototype Monster specializes in new product Industrial Design sketches. We utilize state-of-the-art, cutting edge software and produce high quality images that not only represent your product idea, but present opportunities for multiple design directions. Regardless of the method we use – digital or traditional – the results will be of the highest quality and workmanship. We begin working on your idea with sketches put together during our initial onboard meeting. We have the experience and knowledge to produce results regardless of what we are developing with you: a package, an electronic device, a wearable device or clothing item.
Our sketches will cover the following:
- Solution Explorations
- Proof of Concept
- Design Iterations
- Developmental Drawings
- Industrial Design Sketches
- Industrial Design Renderings
The value that comes from these sketches is immeasurable. They show your customers the design process. They show that thought and considerations went into the design. They show that critical thinking was used. The sketches also give you something tangible to present to colleagues, family and potential investors. The sketches also become a crucial part of your marketing package.
At Prototype Monster we can take your idea along that journey to reality. Sketching is an important first step along that route. Prototype Monster is based in South Florida. We are a design and engineering firm that provides service to clients across the United States and Caribbean.
