The design process can vary greatly depending on the project's complexity and the client's requirements. ID&D Studios adapts its process to fit each project, taking into consideration the product, timeline, and budget to ensure the best possible outcome.
Below is a general outline of the typical design process, with examples of how it can be tailored for different products, both soft and hard.
An overview of the base design and development process is shown below:
CASE STUDY >> SLOWPITCH LEG GUARDS
As a case study, see the below HARD + SOFT GOODS design process for a pair of leg guards, which includes the work flow chart, timeline planning and a visualisation of the design process throughout the various stages.
An example of the development schedule can be seen below, from when the conceptualisation sketches, concept direction, 3D CAD, prototypes, sampling, fit testing, tooling, packaging, etc. The actual timeline was extended, due to the COVID years and factory lockdowns, which resulted in a launch delay.
