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, Joe has worked on 180+ designs and received 14 U.S. patents, two European patents and a few industry awards. After ten years of developing household consumer products, Joe spent his next two decades widening his expertise into medical and electro-mechanical equipment. Today, with wide experience in product development and business management, Joe has been directing his own design firm for the past 19 years. He employs himself and a pool of other talented professionals, all with the goal of creating great products for great companies.

Designers



Our industrial 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 industrial designer in our group is a proven talent with years of successful product outcomes, not just miles traveled. 

Engineers



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 large expenses and risk tied to such things as production tooling, safety liabilities and your company's reputation. We and you can't afford to rely on beginners. Each of our engineers has over a decade of experience with a proven record of accomplishments and successes. Some of the best in the business. Using SolidWorks as our primary CAD format, we'll supply all data and documentation necessary for analysis, review and build. While mechanical engineering is our forte, our team is complimented by partnered electrical and software engineers as we offer total product solutions.

Partners / Vendors



Having been in product development for almost three decades, we have come to know many reliable resources and experts that can be called upon to handle unique or less-common tasks that might arise. Product development takes a village. As a client, you automatically become the beneficiary of a proven network of individuals and companies that can play important roles in the process. As examples, this might include shock and vibration analysis, computational fluid dynamics or nanotechnologies, and almost always certainly includes manufacturing expertise that can make or break your part quality or return on investment. These resources simply become a member of the team when needed.


Tale of a design warrior, perhaps.


“Clever simplicities, a visible attribute to the designer's stubborn spirit. Adding bold yet quiet features, he works with confidence knowing distinction is his favorite color.”
