STATEMENT OF ART:
Industrial Design is the use of a combination of applied art and applied science to improve the aesthetics, ergonomics, Architecture, functionality, and usability of a product, but it may also be used to improve the product's marketability and production. The role of an Industrial design engineer is to create and execute design solutions for problems of form, usability, physical ergonomics, marketing, brand development, and sales. DesignEdge provides a total industrial design and electro-mechanical engineering service to a wide range of industries. Not only can we add style and bring brand appeal to your new product but with our technical expertise we know how to bring those ideas successfully into manufacture. We can look at your product laterally and find innovative solutions that help you realise your product's full potential and lower your costs. As a company we do not follow overnight trends but leading edge design integrating classic proportion with dynamic surfaces to rolll into a pure aesthetic package.
