EBOOK - A Guide To Inventing Your Idea With Shark Design


Our Capabilities

“Research, prototyping & production. We have the right tools to meet any product brief”

Innovation Research & Design Strategies

Ethnographic Research

Observing situations, analysing challenges and identifying opportunities

  • Observation and situational ethnographic research
  • Personas, stakeholder mapping and analysis
  • Journey mapping, task analysis, and critical thinking exercises
  • Market, trend, and opportunity identification
  • Test the solution

Ideation Workshops & Creative Spaces

Building solutions, testing assumptions and identifying routes forward

  • Ideation workshops in-house or at our Miami and Hong Kong product design studios.
  • Collaborative, creative workspaces to share and build ideas
  • Concept sprints, creative matrices, and team concept building
  • Modelling, mock-ups, storyboarding and prototyping

Electronic Product Development & Enclosure Design

Electronics Prototyping

  • PCB layout design, verification & validation
  • System architecture design
  • Schematic design
  • Electronics prototype testing
  • Thermal modeling
  • Design for manufacturing verification
