SIGMADESIGN

We are a multi-disciplinary team of experts focused on product design, machine design and engineering, and manufacturing.

At SIGMADESIGN, we specialize in taking a product from concept through production. But we also provide specialized services at any stage of the process. Many of our clients work on R&D projects as a part of investigating or creating a new product category or use case for their market. Our Industrial Design team offers an effective way to bring a new level of fit/finish and usability to R&D projects. This may be beneficial for selling an idea upstream within a company, shedding light on human factors/usability concerns extremely early in the development process, or helping to define a project to assist in IP filings to protect an idea years before final development.

It all starts with a conversation. Use the link below to set up a conversation or call us at 360.693.2600. We are happy to talk with you about your project and plan a path forward to success.

Architecture and System Development is about overall design thinking, which considers the entire system - more than the specific expertise needed for development, and more than any single aspect or discipline. Our Industrial Design team works with every stakeholder and discipline to gather input needed to develop a visual guide for an entire system; digital, physical or both.

Our ID team creates a visual architecture to facilitate cross-discipline discussion and provide a reference for future development and expansion. By combining physical inputs (button push/hold) with visual elements (map, display state), we are able to provide a single reference document for the entire team that facilitates discussion and development. Tracing through an architecture like this allows for pinpointing and mapping critical issues like time-outs, error recovery, and dead-ends. Visual elements and overall complexity can also refined.

Having a single visual map for everyone to point to during discussion is critical to final alignment and successful release. This same type of documentation can be applied to physical systems as well, such as production lines/processes and complex, multi-function tools.

Buttons, menus, micro-interactions OH MY! There are so many elements to designing a great user interface (UI). Each element should stand on its own, yet together work as a whole. Similar to developing the personality of a brand, every facet of the UI should speak the same language and yield the same stylistic vibe.

Industrial Designers focus on how an end-user interacts with the product. This frame of thought becomes very important when designing how end-users visually react and interact with a user interface. A designer should intuitively understand the fundamental need(s) of each project in order to set the proper hierarchy for the numerous design challenges. For example, this could mean development of stunning imagery with the intent to draw in the end-user while intentionally not overwhelming the user with information/data. Sometime the design is as linear as possible, so that graphical elements and feedback responses within the UI are clean, easy to read, and straightforward.

If you need assistance with UI design for your product, contact us. We’d love the opportunity to discuss your specific needs and help ensure your product’s success. https://www.sigmadzn.com/contact-us/consultation/

At SIGMADESIGN, our Industrial Design team works with a lot of companies that have their own full product development capabilities in-house excluding Industrial Design. Due to lengthy product development timelines or spaced out product release dates, it may not make sense to keep a team of Industrial Designers in-house on a permanent basis. SIGMADESIGN Industrial Design fills this need and can be the design team you need when you need it. A consistent design team can provide guidance for maintaining design integrity for new product line extensions, as well as push design evolution to keep your products relevant in the market and on point with your brand, without the full-time overhead expense.

In an information rich society, now more than ever finding better and more efficient ways to communicate is critical. At SIGMADESIGN, we utilize infographics to deliver various messages. Showing information graphically in a visually engaging and simplified manner can communicate so much more than using text only. Many of us gravitate toward visuals, and with so many of us pressed for time, we have a tendency to skim information quickly. We may be more careful consumers at times, but usually only when the content we find is interesting.

The goal of an infographic is to hook the viewer, deliver the content in a more enjoyable manner, and hopefully help the viewer retain the information. Here are a few examples of infographics our industrial designers have recently created for our team. If you need new ways of communicating information, contact us for a chat about your needs: https://www.sigmadzn.com/contact-us/consultation/

Industrial Design is a critical aspect to any successful product. But during a product's development, people may have questions about the process, impact or necessity of Industrial Design. We have created this handy flowchart to help guide you through the process of determining whether or not you should consult an Industrial Designer on your next project. We are happy to discuss your project and what level of Industrial Design involvement would be appropriate to help ensure a fully developed and successful product.

Industrial Designers and Engineers can sometimes feel at odds with each other since they approach the same problem from different perspectives. Industrial Designers look for ways a product can succeed while Engineers look for all the ways a product can fail and how to eliminate those failures. We understand, and appreciate that no product can reach its full potential without the dedicated, expert approach of both Industrial Design and Engineers. At SIGMADESIGN, our Designers and Engineers collaborate effectively to create the most balanced, successful products.

Looking for expert product design? Let’s have a conversation. We are happy to talk with you about your project and plan a path forward to success.

SIGMADESIGN offers UI/UX design expertise using Adobe XD. The program allows the ability to wireframe, animate, prototype, and collaborate for the design of websites, mobile apps, voice and more. Using this powerful UI/UX program benefits the entire process of delivering UI/UX design from beginning to end.

Our ID team is able to design, iterate, and make design revisions efficiently. One of the most powerful elements of Adobe XD is its ability to share design progress with all the stakeholders using interactive prototypes. Interactive prototypes allow the UI/UX to be viewed and reviewed as it is intended to look and behave. This eliminates much of the guess work and reduces confusion when arriving at a final UI/UX design. Handoff between designer and our Firmware/Software Team is seamless.

IoT connectivity capabilities combine with ordinary objects to reinvent them. You might use something like a pedometer reinvented as a fitness tracker and watch. Or someday use a phone app to check inventory in your refrigerator while you are at the store. ⠀⠀

The incredible complexity of code hidden inside consumer electronic devices is viewed through the small portal of the user interface. When developing a wireless device, it is important to select a consultant with well-established firmware and software framework and development processes in place. Software frameworks simplify and speed up development as well as provide a basis for future enhancements, improved performance and increased stability with little additional development effort.⠀⠀
