LUMA-iD specialises in Product Design and prototyping. We are a small, focused team who can help our clients take the most basic sketch and turn it into a fully developed product. Design requires a mixture of experience, problem solving and creativity — that’s why we love it. Have a look around the website to see what we do and if you have a prototype that needs building or a product that needs designing, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Once a brief has been discussed and agreed, we dive straight into the design process, bringing to life a large variety of CONCEPTS. This stage involves continual communication with the client by presenting ideas through sketches, mood boards, and even those small exciting doodles. Once an initial design has been chosen we will move onto CAD.
The best way of communicating a design is through the use of CAD. We take a clients concept and produce drawings, with accurate measurements, features and surface finishes. These digital models can then be presented as rendered images and working drawings, to bring that concept one step closer to being manufactured.
PROTOTYPING is one of the most important stages of the design process. Using rapid prototyping to produce 3D printed models of a design can help us find issues and areas for improvement. It is the best way of showing a client what their concept will look like as a final product. With our new very own FDM 3D printer, we are able to print our CAD models in a matter of hours.
The final stage of PRODUCTION is where we take all the research, testing, sketches and prototypes and input them into the manufacturing processes and materials, to produce a final product. Taking all aspects of a product's form and function into consideration, and finding the most suitable ways to produce it, as this is the only way to get the best results.
We use our knowledge and expertise in design to help brainstorm the possibilities for your idea. The vital stage of market research and user research are important when compiling a design specification for each project and we help provide you with as much information as possible.
Our small team of specialist product designers can take your idea from concept to CAD, prototypes and finally production. With connections to manufacturers, suppliers and new technologies, we can solve your design problems and help your vision a reality.
An important aspect of taking your design to the market is protecting your product through patents, trademarks, design registrations and copyrights. We will assist you in any applications you may need to ensure your product is legally protected. We have experience in US, UK & EU applications and can provide patent drawings and the most suitable and cost-effective methods.
The majority of design work we do, involves CAD in some way. We can use CAD to produce high-quality 3D prints and even prepare files for manufacturers. Our skills in CAD modelling mean we can produce models with a fast turn around and also provide our CAD service alone, for reverse engineer and simple one-off design work.
Rendering is a great way of communicating an idea or design, therefore we pay a lot of attention to detail, to present images and presentations of products. Our service provides high quality, photo-realistic images that can be used for branding, advertising and even boards for investor presentations. We can also explore materials and finishes at this stage of the design process, to find the most aesthetically pleasing solution.
Our graphic design services allows you to brand your product and also decide on names, logos and colour schemes for any design. We use graphic design for presentations, leaflets and even packaging design, We provide a graphic design service that will develop any design to be ready for the market.
