Product Design, Engineering, and Development Solutions

Thoughtfully designed products, expertly engineered for production.

Our Industrial Designers and Engineers work hand-in-hand to help you transform new product concepts into production-ready CAD data for prototypes and manufacturing. This interdisciplinary approach allows us to provide you with excellent solutions to almost any product development challenge.

Need an external perspective and expertise on your new product idea or design?

Product Design

At Empire Group, we approach the first stages of new product development by combining visual art, physical and behavioral science, and technology to help translate your ideas into fully refined design solutions. The result is an improved product that is optimized for aesthetics, functionality, and marketability.

Our Process:

Collaborative Exploration – We work collaboratively with you to gain a clear understanding of your product and its intent, identify and define your challenges, and document your needs.

Research & Design - Through research and discovery, we define key product details and translate these variables into a range of product design concepts that are both feasible and marketable.

Engineer & Refine – Once the design is confirmed, we can assist with the technical details of your product. This includes optimizing your product for manufacturability, functionality, and cost.

Data Delivery – Upon final sign-off, we provide a high-quality production package that includes photorealistic images, 3D renderings, and production-ready CAD data.
