CORPORATE DESIGN SERVICES
We work with companies across a range of industry sectors to improve product sales, including: homeware and kitchenware, hardware, science and medical, consumer goods, transport and automotive, infrastructure, industrial, mining, gas and oil. Product sales begin with great product design. Our professional design services can improve styling, functionality, and marketability of products, as well as designing to reduce tooling, setup and manufacturing costs. All of these go a long way to improving your product sales and improving the bottom line.
CONCEPT DESIGN SERVICES
If you have an idea for a new invention or product, our professional industrial design services can help you to turn it into a functional, marketable product. All you need is a good idea and a can-do attitude to get your project off the ground. In the concept design phase we flesh out your idea and identify the key value points. We give you a professional opinion of product logistics and present ideas from our design team of how it can be improved. We work with you to ensure that you remain in control of the design process within a supportive environment
PATENT PROTECTION SERVICES
Once we have developed the idea into a workable concept, you will need to get it protected. We have formed relationships with excellent patent attorneys who work with the team to file for a provisional patent. Alternatively, if you have your own preferred patent attorney we can liaise with them to make sure your great idea is properly protected.

CAD DESIGN SERVICES / 3D MODELING
Once the design concept is selected and approved, our team will build a virtual 3D model using the latest computer-aided design software. These 3D models help to clearly understand the product and its function, before embarking on the manufacture of the proposed design.
2D ENGINEERING DRAFTING SERVICES / DESIGN DOCUMENTATION
2D engineering drawings are generated for each component to fully and clearly define requirements such as materials and tolerances, capturing all geometric features for engineered parts. These form the blueprint for the factories to produce prototypes and the final product samples.
TESTING AND ENGINEERING COMPLIANCE SERVICES
In the prototyping phase We put our products through a rigorous . Every product we engineer undergoes a thorough quality control checklist which is generated by Form Designs and tested by qualified QC personnel in the related manufacturing industry. In many cases this includes dealing with authorities in different genres of engineering, including structural and civil engineers together with testing authorities such as ITS and Kema covering testing for C tick, CE, EMC and UL.
PRODUCTION AND FACTORY SOURCING
Over the past 3 decades, Form Designs has established strong working relationships with manufacturing companies locally and abroad, in metal fabrication, plastics and electronics. These close relationships help to effectively select the ideal manufacturer for your project.
INFORMATION / GRAPHIC DESIGN SERVICES
Displaying accurate, comprehensive information for worksites and industrial environments ensures safety, economy and efficiency. Banners, instruction manuals, corporate identity and guidelines and presentations of new concepts, ideas and projects are our speciality.
At Form Designs, we believe that good work structure is the key to success. A well planned and organized project will allow the design process to run smoothly through to production. Deadlines can then be met. In most cases, we managed projects from start to finish, but can also take over existing projects if required.
