DEVELOPING YOUR PRODUCT IDEA
From initial brainstorming to market research, our expert team of product designers can support you through all stages of developing your product idea, ensuring we achieve this in a way that suits you and best complements your invention; breaking all research conducted down into achievable actions.
BRAINSTORMING AND PATENT SEARCH
Have your idea reviewed by our team of experienced and professional product designers during a studio session dedicated to brainstorming and patent searching your product idea; exploring all options available to you, and using the creative process to uncover the potential of your product and/or invention idea. Our brainstorming sessions outline potential new ideas generated from your original concept.
SHOULD I PATENT MY IDEA?
Often, we get asked by our clients should I patent my idea? and, in reality, there’s no simple answer, depending entirely on your circumstances. Protecting your idea - or intellectual property - is and incredibly important process in any product design or invention journey, but patenting can be a very expensive and time consuming procedure; costing on average between £1,000 and £30,000, excluding ongoing maintenance costs.
A patent is a form of intellectual property (IP) that, once granted, protects the unique and inventive way that a product works. It grants the owner of the patent the sole rights to make and sell the patented product within the county that the patent was granted. Often an expensive and lengthy process, our patent advice can help you determine whether patenting your invention idea is right for you; supporting you by conducting a patent search and registration drawings where appropriate.
DESIGN AND LAUNCH PACKAGES
Whether you need support with prototype design, investment presentations or crowdfunding, our comprehensive invention design and launch packages have been created to help you achieve your goals; providing expert advice, guidance, and practical solutions to bring you from initial idea to product manufacturing as efficiently and cost effectively as possible.
Crowdfunding, Licencing, Self fund
Do you plan to sell / licence the IP within the idea, manufacture the end product in order sell through distributors or even start a new business and sell it yourself? The answer to this question could determine the best route forward and considering this could save valuable time and money.

Alongside providing our own NDAs, we also recommend that a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) / confidentiality agreement is signed by both you and the party you wish to disclose information to.

Support for new product development
Most invention ideas are in need of some development before an application for intellectual property (IP) can be sought. Applying for intellectual property before an invention is fully developed can often lead to expensive amends having to be made to the application after it is filed.
