Case Study: SolarPod™

Here’s how we took a good idea and made it great…

The Solarpod™ success has been made possible by directly teaming it’s designers with the Sunbird Engineering Team. The innovative spark that new ideas bring can often fade when confronted with the communication challenges of a traditional manufacturing relationship. Taking out the middleman, having a trusted one-to-one dialog, means product ideas go from prototype to iteration and are ready-to-ship faster and more cost effective.

- New Reality -

Design is the fundamental soul of a human-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service.

- Steve Jobs -

A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

- Douglas Adams -

A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry -

The Question is no longer what we can make but what we can make that is worthwhile
