Our process

We discover opportunities, we design and develop successful products and we take care of realization.

Whether it is complete care-free handling of all product development or short trajectories, Helder-ID provides tailored solutions for all types of projects. Working together, with both our clients and our development partners, is an integral part of our methodology. The approach described below is our guideline, but commonly we adapt to the specific needs of our clients.

Discover

Understanding the challenge

The first step towards a successful product is understanding the challenge and context. As strategic partner we use a range of research methods to gain insights and discover relevant opportunities. The goal is to work out the requirements that drive the rest of the project and ensure realistic proposals that meets user needs and business requirements.

Turning ideas into tangible designs

In a creative and iterative process, we start visualizing our ideas and make them tangible. We define product and digital concepts including styling, look & feel, user interaction and ergonomics and present them by means of sketches, conceptual CAD models, renderings, and mock-ups. We repeatedly create prototypes to validate and refine the concepts created.

Develop

Defining every detail

The next step is to complete the definition of all product design details, including styling, colors and materials, user interaction & ergonomics. By making 3D models and CAD visualizations the design is verified and refined. The engineering of the product also involves calculations and simulations (ie. FEM) and the definition of the products’ final materials & production technologies.

Getting ready for market introduction

To make sure that the product can be introduced to the market, verification of the design and manufacturability is done by means of prototyping & (user) testing, and subsequent refinement and optimizations. We take care of the industrialization process, including sourcing & procurement of tooling and process optimization.
