Pepper Design services:
- Idea generation (Angled brainstorming)
- Product & packaging development
- Model & Mock-up support
- Mobile Workshop (make mock-up’s on location during idea generation sessions)
- Interim packaging and project support
Pepper Design can offer a full service from the very early stage of a project until the realization of the project but also dedicated support in separate phases of a project.
For each phase a plan is made and resources are allocated. Overall we offer a pragmatic and efficient way of working in close cooperation with the project members involved.
1. Pepper Design services: Idea generation
Generating ideas by the Angled-brainstorm-session, a method to combine successfull ideas with consumer insights, content, brand strategy and technological possibilities!
Pepper Design facilitates brainstorm sessions and undertakes market-research: what is new and upcoming, where are opportunities to be found?
2. Pepper Design services: Product & packaging design
A analysis will be made to create a solid base for the project and list requirements and project expectations:
- Project definition (including must-haves and nice-to-0haves)
- List consumer insights & hidden consumer need
- Project specifications: technical demands; production, factory demands, logistics etc
- Concepts will be generated in clear ideas and innovative product concepts.
- In an early stage drawings and (handmade) models will be made for an initial indication of shape, size, ergonomics, functionalities, feasibility and brand.
- After a process of selection and improvement a final route will be upgraded and turned into feasible product ready for production.
3. Pepper Design services: Model & mock-up support
Pepper Design can prepare mock-up’s in order to check 3-Dimensional concepts. The execution of the mock-up depends on the purpose:
- Quick mock-up to review first impression (ergonomics, size impression, on shelf etc) and comparison
- Design routes, impression vs competition, this is a great tool in the early stage of a project and changes are easily made
- Functional mock-up to review technical principals or for functional tests (function, line test etc.)
- High quality mock-ups to research design, aesthetics (internal or consumer research). It is possible to include elements: labels, colours / textures, include (fake) content (formulation etc.)
4. Pepper Design services: Engineering
We co-operate with an engineering agency specialized in designing for functionality, production and cost efficient, therefore we can offer:
- Technical creativity in solving problems and technical design
- Material knowledge and understanding of production and manufacturing processes
- Product development with 3D cad system Pro-E
- Mould flow simulations
- Final element analysis
- Rapid prototyping
- Development, preparation and testing of simulation models
- (Pilot) mould construction expertise
- Risk assessments (FMEA)
- Tolerance studies
5. Pepper Design services: Interim packaging & project management
- Interim support when needed.
- Working together in cross function innovation teams from Marketing, R&D, Engineering, Supply Chain and Finance.
6. Pepper Design services: Mobile Workshop Pepper Design
The mobile workshop is a method for supporting Innovative Product Development.
On location concepts can be translating immediately into rough concept ideas (verbal / text) in drawing and touchable mock-up (painted 3D foam model).
Touchable results within hours!
Advantages, initial impression of:
- Size and shape
- Ergonomics / handling
- Consumer benefits
- User interface
The sketch/model helps the internal discussion, pin pointing areas of improvement in a quick and efficient way.
