With over 10 years of industry experience, we are here to help you with all you product design needs. We are truly passionate about what we do, from creating new products to finding manufacturing solutions. We have worked on products that have ranged from retail prices of under £100 to over £1m.
We specialise in turning ideas into reality. We transform initial concepts into shop-ready products, providing a complete A-Z product design service. Whether you wish to expand on an existing product range or start from scratch, we are here to help.
A great product is only one part of a successful business, and the importance of good branding should never be underestimated. From packaging to photo shoots, we can help you sculpt and strengthen your image, ensuring that every element of what you do is on brand.
We offer an in depth analysis of any existing products and the brand’s target market and aspirations, whilst determining the strengths and weaknesses of the brand.
This step concerns the structure of the collection. Through market research, we identify the creative direction of your brand including trends, colours, materials and price-points.
This can either be a highly inclusive step-by-step process or it can be delivery of a fully finalised design. The designs can be tailored to fit a specific theme or briefing created with or by you.
We work directly with manufacturers to create a shop-ready product. This includes revising prototypes, cost management, day-to-day enquiries and technical revisions.
We act as external advisers for you, helping with buying and sourcing products. This can also include modifying existing products to ensure a global brand identity.
AMS Design Studio can offer you 3-D visualisations of your products. This can be part of the design process (for prototyping etc.) or purely for presentation purposes (videos etc.).
We can develop and strengthen your existing brand or work on creating a new brand from scratch. Including brand material such as brand guidelines, photography and catalogues.
Together we work on a social media strategy for your brand. This includes elements such as channels, tone of voice and lifestyle.
