Anything that relates to designing and producing a soft goods product is in my wheelhouse, but helping my clients with these aspects of product development is most common:
Building Tech Packs: An accurate, detailed tech pack is necessary for getting samples that meet your expectations, which shortens your timeline, saves you money, and makes your manufacturer happy because it reduces a lot of their guesswork. I’m routinely told that my tech packs are surprisingly thorough and easy to work from.
Concept Development: You know what you want your product to do and/or what it should look like. Take your concept to the next level by utilizing my soft goods industrial design skills to make it look awesome, maximize functionality, and streamline your costs.
Sourcing Fabrics and Trims: I’m always on the lookout for cool new fabrics, trims, and technologies, and I’m happy to share these resources with you. Whether you know exactly what you want or have just a rough idea of the look/feel you’re going for, I can help you dial in the specifics.
Research & Strategy: Start your project with solid design strategy and everything will be easier down the road. We’ll work together to create user scenarios, look at relevant trends, and prepare a competitive audit to make sure the concept stands apart from the competition.
Coaching: Starting a consumer products business is a journey that I know intimately. My coaching services help you map out your journey and provide you with monthly check-ins to keep you continuing along your path, making adjustments as necessary.
