Ideation & concepting

As a first and crucial step in the development of your product, we gather creative ideas in a dynamic brainstorming process. We visualize the most promising of these through moodboards, sketches, renders, Photoshop and/or AI tools. Through iterative refinement, we pave the way for distinctive products that help you stand out, attract the right audience and give you a competitive edge in the market.

3D modeling & styling

This is where your concepts truly come to life. Using CAD software, we further define them, exploring different stylings, colors, materials, finishes, … This process is not just about visualization, but acts as a strategic bridge between innovation and realization. It ensures your product and its design will resonate with your intended users, align with your brand identity and will be feasible to produce.

Prototyping

More often than not, product development isn’t a breezy A-to-Z process, but requires a lot of exploration and iteration. Prototyping is a tool we use during all of the above stages, to validate and improve your concepts, models and designs. It allows us to test assumptions, gather and incorporate user feedback, and enhance the functionality and design of your product, making sure it will fulfill - and surpass - your expectations.

Technical design

During the technical design stage, we listen to your requirements to select the most appropriate manufacturing techniques and translate your model into exact specifications and a precise blueprint. Our ultimate goal? Delivering a design that makes the manufacturing process as smooth, seamless and cost-efficient as possible.

Production sourcing

Don’t worry: we won’t leave you to your fate when it’s time to manufacture your product. We have an extensive network of production partners and are happy to help you find the perfect match, given your budget and requirements. Equals Three can support you throughout the industrialisation process and will join you at the table for any technical conversations or production follow-up, to make sure your product will be a game changer for your company.
