Product design

Disco Innovation Studio offers expertise in integrating user experience design (UX) principles into the design and development of physical products. We take an interdisciplinary approach to ensure that your product is desirable to users, viable in the market, and aligns with both your company's goals as well as standards in sustainable industrial design .

Why it matters

UX is an integral piece of the puzzle to achieving a product that not only functions, but is also useful, enjoyable, and accessible to your target market. Without incorporating UX strategies into the concept design and testing stage of your product, you could miss the mark on what will make your product successful.

Through product research and testing, we can mitigate risk and increase confidence in sharing your product with the world. You'll build relationships with your customers earlier on in the product life cycle, ensuring that your product solves a problem that they might have.

How we help

At Disco Innovation Studio, we know that the most successful products come from a desire to solve a problem that people have.  By understanding the motivations and behaviours of those using your product, we can co-design solutions based on qualitative and quantitative research that align with the lived experience of your customers.

Our team will ensure that our research and workshop strategies are aligned with the strategic direction of your product while also maximizing convenience and removing barriers for your customers. Our experience in product research and development also prioritizes sustainability of our communities and environments.
