Owner / Director

Joe Kapushion


Joe is an award-winning product developer with 29+ years of experience. With a BS degree in mechanical engineering and over two decades as a product designer and engineer, Joe has worked on 180+ designs and received 14 U.S. patents, two European patents and a few industry awards. After ten years in household consumer products, Joe spent his next two decades widening his expertise into medical and electro-mechanical equipment. Today, with a full toolbox of skills in design and engineering as well as business management, Joe has been directing his own design firm for the past 20 years. He employs himself and a pool of other talented professionals, all with the goal of creating great products for great companies.

Designers

Industrial, Conceptual, Graphics


Our designers are driven to explore and create. With keen market knowledge, they know what can and should be next. To be well-rounded, they have made many trips around the block and that includes your block. They are well-traveled so to speak. Our designers are accomplished and energizing. They set the product trajectory, defining the features, aesthetics and ergonomics. All downstream players follow this path, so their visions must be fresh and appealing as well as realistic. Their effect on the process and its outcome cannot be under emphasized. Therefore, each designer in our group is a proven talent with years of successful product outcomes, not just miles traveled. 

Engineers

Mechanical, Electrical, Software

 

We are proud of our engineers. Engineers must get it right with the smallest margins of error because their output is ultimately manufactured. We realize you have big risks tied to tooling costs, production runs, safety liabilities and your company's reputation. We, and you, can't afford to rely on beginners. Each of our engineers has a proven record of accomplishments and successes. Using SolidWorks as our primary CAD format, we'll supply all data and documentation necessary for analysis, fabrication and quality control. While mechanical engineering is our forte, our team is complimented by partnered electrical and software engineers as we offer total product solutions.

Partners / Vendors

Manufacturers, Technical Experts


Having been in product development for for over two decades, we have come to know many reliable resources and experts that are called upon to handle specialized and necessary tasks that arise. Product development takes a village. As our client, you automatically become the beneficiary of a proven network of individuals and vendors that play important roles in the process. This might include manufacturing, assembly, packaging, material selection, shock and vibration analysis, computational fluid dynamics, optics and more. These areas can make or break product outcomes which affect your return on investment and success. These resources can be on the team and contribute as needed.


Tale of a design warrior, perhaps.


“The product's clever simplicities are a visible attribute to the designer's stubborn spirit. Adding bold yet quiet features, he designs with confidence using distinction as his favorite color.”
