Wonderful design outcomes are a combination of creativity, intuition and passion underpinned with deep knowledge and research. Combining an understanding of human behaviour with advanced technologies results in a step change that is transformative.
A complete development service is provided to clients including, market analysis, concept design, feasibility studies, mechanical development, prototypes and production documentation. We believe in development starting with innovation and sound planning through to quality documentation and aftercare.
Our research-based multi-disciplined approach to design. It incorporates traditional disciplines such as industrial design and architecture with new specialists competencies such as human behaviour research and ergonomics. The resultant outcomes produce solutions that leapfrog competitors.
Product creation is a result of creative thought processes combined with specialised tools and resources.
The team at Blue Sky has developed a series of unique and creative tools that enrich our design process and ultimately enhance the creative output of the team. Some of these tools include market research techniques, customer analysis, customer profiling, brand positioning, visual trend analysis, visual mapping and product foot printing.
These tools provide the design team with knowledge that empowers them to create solutions that are both innovative and respond to real customer needs.
Product design at Blue Sky starts with the establishment of a partnership between ourselves and our client.

In complex markets where there can be as many as 20 manufacturers competing for market share, traditional design techniques will not produce an outcome that positions our client in a leading role. In the past, small design teams have used their intuition rather than market knowledge to create products. In the current market where the risks are high, a designer’s intuition should be reinforced with information and knowledge generated by the use of strategic design tools.
With every project, Blue Sky strives to achieve the maximum possible. This results in innovative and award winning products.
Engineering is a vital and important part of the product design process. Its role is to develop initial concepts and ideas into a working product. It is usually here that most products will lose their initial design intent. Experience, innovation, material specialists and state-of-the-art software are some of the elements which Blue Sky uses to guard and implement the initial design intent.
The to-market realisation of a product design is directly linked to the engineering quality of a product. Besides the identity of a product, the functional and mechanical aspects are paramount in achieving commercial success.
At Blue Sky we have a multi-disciplinary team to support all parts of the engineering process. From detailed CAD modelling, technical documentation, prototyping, FEA (Finite Element Analysis) to electrical components and complex switching. As in the concept stage of product design, Blue Sky strives to create innovation wherever it can and give our client that unique edge over their competitors.
By using the latest computer rendering technology, Blue Sky can create powerful, dynamic high resolution images of your product range for web, packaging and other marketing materials. Unlike traditional photography, 3D visualisation provides higher quality images, produced in a shorter time frame, and can be completed before physical product samples are available. Preparation of 3D visualisations are also highly flexible and cost effective when compared to traditional photography. Lighting, materials and other properties can be altered until a desired look and feel is achieved.
Blue Sky has the capability to provide still images in both studio or lifestyle settings, as well as animations, to bring your product to life. Whether you require full renders or a combination of photography and renders, we can help. This showcase represents some of the most recent projects undertaken by the Blue Sky visualisation team.
