DESIGN PROCESS

We are a London based design company. For many years we have been working with big companies, bringing their designs to market. For this project we wanted to design a product that we thought was important. 

As young designers, who are living in a large city like London, we understand the problems of working on the go and we wanted to design a tool which could help us overcome these obstacles. We went out and asked you about the way you work on the go, to find a solution which could make it more comfortable.

we asked you what you needed.

Risks and challenges

DTC BOX is extremely complicated to make. All of the pieces must fit together for a smooth functionality which could stand a long term use. The quick and smooth function is only made possible by us correctly sewing together all the individual parts. DTC BOX is handmade the old fashioned way, using sewing machines. So the biggest risk is that some small but important detail will be done incorrectly. Our challenge is to ensure production is accurate and the product functions properly. To counter this we plan to have two quality assurance specialists from London at the factory during the entire production process to verify that the correct materials, cutting, sewing, packing, and shipping methods are used. Ideally we would like to bring the assembly line to England to ensure the finest quality and we will do so if we reach our 3rd milestone.
Alternately, if there is an issue during production it will be corrected before the next step. We fully respect the scheduled ship date however we won’t compromise the product quality only to achieve the scheduled ship date. We will make sure the product is made correctly and to the highest standard possible. No matter what, we will update our backers during the production.
