Design thinking, ideation, and brainstorming sessions to help you refine and develop your ideas. Tell us about your idea. We will probably ask a lot of questions about your target market and your business goals too.


Using idea generation techniques and our conceptual design skills, we will create a range of innovative designs for your consideration. A design process and methodology that is innovative and creative, ensuring that we identify and solve any potential problems before they arise.


Design solutions that are visually appealing and aesthetically pleasing, as well as ensuring that your product is strategically designed to meet the unique needs of your target audience. We will review and refine the concepts until you are 100% happy with the results.


We can present our user-centred designs as digital sketches, photo realistic renders, or physical prototypes, so you can see how your product is intuitive and easy to use. Whatever you need to unlock support for the development project.

The Impact of Conceptual Design on Product Success

Conceptual design plays a vital role in the success of a product. Apple’s iPhone and the Pebble Smartwatch are two excellent examples of how conceptual design can lead to a successful product.

Apple’s initial concept for the iPhone was to create a smartphone that was intuitive and easy to use, which was translated into the product’s design. The result was a product that revolutionised the smartphone market and is still one of the most popular smartphones in the world. The Pebble Smartwatch, which was designed with the initial concept of a watch that could connect to a user’s smartphone and display notifications, was also widely praised by critics and consumers alike.

According to a report by the Design Management Institute, companies that emphasise design outperform their competitors by 219% over ten years, which is a significant margin. Another study by McKinsey & Company found that companies that invest in design see higher revenue growth, higher market share, and higher returns to shareholders than companies that do not invest in design. A report by the Design Council found that every £1 invested in design leads to an average return on investment of £4.41.

Everything You Need to Know

What is conceptual design in product development?

Conceptual design is the brainstorming stage where we think big and sketch out the initial ideas for new products. For instance, when designing a new medical device Oxford based medical R&D consultants Medisyne, this phase allowed us to imagine innovative features that could revolutionise patient care and save so much time for hospital staff by using automated Urine monitoring.

How does conceptual design differ from other design phases?

This phase is all about creativity - less bogged down by specifics and more about what could be. Take the fitness equipment "A-Trainer" we designed a while back. Conceptual design was key in envisioning the most user-friendly product from gym goers, before getting into the mechanics of it.

What are the primary goals and techniques of conceptual design?

The aim is to set a strong foundation with innovative ideas and identify any potential issues early. Techniques like sketching, 3D modelling, and even simple discussions help visualise and refine these ideas, ensuring the project has a strong, innovative starting point.

Why is asking "What if" significant in conceptual design?

“What if” isn’t just a question; it’s a mindset. It pushes the boundaries of current creative thinking and explores solutions to potential challenges. It’s about pushing limits and exploring alternatives. Challenging the usual ways of doing things and discovering new possibilities.

How does conceptual design impact the final product and project success?

Early decisions in conceptual design can significantly shape the development, cost, and ultimate success of a product. It sets the tone for the project and ensures that ideas align with practical and market realities.

Can you provide examples of successful conceptual design outcomes?

Certainly! Our award-winning work on products like The KB Pro Glider and smart kitchen appliance Cuisine Machine, both started with conceptual designs that focused on usability and innovation, leading to products that are not only effective but also intuitive for the person using the devices.
