Our Approach

RPD works with clients across 4 main service offerings. These are designed to help our clients to move a project from early innovation through development and testing, into consumer testing and production in the most efficient way.

Our end-to-end approach allows clients to save considerable amounts of time and money in the development process. Traditionally companies are contracting with multiple teams through a development process, overlapping work and re-learning from issues along the way. Our clients work largely through one RPD contact for the entire product development cycle, allowing continuity between project milestones, lowering risk of errors and miscommunication between contractors. We work with your internal resource to handle planning, engineering, procurement and logistics – simplifying the way you work and leaving you open to keep thinking bigger.

 

We are focussed on helping you plan ahead, creating visibility on a product launch very early in development. We use early Innovation Design Studies to provide an outlook on the entire process, with predicted budgets and timelines for both development, and the proposed end product.

 

Early studies propose suitable technical and design overview, of how a brief may be solved – summarised in a number of detailed propositions. Each proposition is packaged into a prediction of development stages, costs and timelines – along with estimated production costs for each potential solution.
