Confidentiality & NDA's

It is vital to keep your idea confidential

Avoid disclosing your product design idea publicly. Not only could others steal your idea but it could compromise your chances of patenting the idea. Controlled disclosure is necessary when developing a new product design and speaking with stakeholders so we always recommend a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) / confidentiality agreement is signed by both you and the party you wish to disclose information to. This could be a manufacturer, customer or a design company such as Idea Reality Ltd. Our product design agency provides all our clients with free NDA documents so that they can communicate their ideas to us as well as outside parties.

PATENTS & DESIGN REGISTRATIONS

Select the best protection for your design

Many people think that they must patent their idea immediately but this is not always the best use of money or time and sometimes not necessary at all. All product design projects are different and require different routes to achieve great results. The first thing to do is speak to a patent professional. Idea Reality product design agency can advise on the most suitable intellectual property (IP) to apply for whether a patent, design registration or nothing at all. Most ideas need some development before an IP application should be sought. There is no point patenting a half baked idea only to develop and improve it a few weeks later, rendering the initial application obsolete, and leading to increased costs.

PROTOTYPE & TEST

3D Printing, Test Rigs, Rapid Tooling

A number of prototypes may be required as your design idea develops and improves. Prototypes can take different forms depending upon the stage in the design process. Rough mock-up, scale model, 3D printed prototype, fully functioning model or Final visual prototype. It would not be sensible to produce a fully functioning and realistic prototype at great expense before the basic elements such as form, style and functionality are tested. In most cases the prototype is only required to prove that the concept design is correct before proceeding to manufacture however the complexity of the design will determine the quantity and types of prototypes required

Crowdfunding, Licencing, Self fund

What is your end goal

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.
