What was the scope of their involvement?
Idea Reality - Product Design has worked through several stages of development with us.
First, we discussed the idea for the portable charger with their team, which they then took to their designers. We selected one out of about five concepts the team had come up with and then began working on more detailed development.
Once we were happy with what the developers had produced, we moved on to the electronic stage, which we outsourced.
The next phase was prototyping, and Idea Reality - Product Design was able to 3D print the product along with the electronic aspect. We worked together to fine-tune all the details, and now we’re moving onto the manufacturing portion of the project.
What is the team composition?
Our main points of contact have been James (Founder & Design Director, Idea Reality - Product Design) and Teddy (Product Designer, Idea Reality - Product Design).
We’ve also been in touch with Sharon (Sales and Client Manager, Idea Reality - Product Design) for the financial aspect of our engagement.
How did you come to work with Idea Reality - Product Design?
We contacted a few companies in several different countries and received quotes from some of them. However, the clarity of Idea Reality - Product Design’s pricing and timeline helped us decide they were the best fit for our project.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent between $9,000-$10,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We first started working with Idea Reality - Product Design in January 2019, and the engagement is ongoing.
