CONNECTED HOME PRODUCTS
Located in Lowertown Saint Paul Minnesota, we are tapped into a network of professionals to help you design your product idea into reality. We start with an initial consultation and review where you are at and what you have for objectives.
Virtual Ideation and Collaboration
Long before the concept of remote working was forced upon everyone, Abstrategy Design began remote video conferencing and cintiq sketching with our clients and peer design team.
Who we are, and our expertise
Our team includes Industrial Designers for ideation, styling, process development, manufacturing direction, research, ethnography, and design leadership. In addition to Industrial Designers, our team includes Mechanical Designers for DFM (Design For Manufacturing), Electrical Engineers for Circuit Board Design and Electronics development; Sourcing Project Managers who hold and maintain an extensive list of suppliers from sample-making and prototyping to full manufacturing.
Diversity of experience over many years
Abstrategy Design includes extensively well experienced tenured veterans of design and manufacturing having honed their skills around the world and junior to mid level designers including college interns and recent grads.
Managing your development from idea to reality
Abstrategy Design has a team of Certified Project Managers (CPM’s) located in Dongguan Region of China who help us qualify manufacturers there as well as oversee manufacturing for quality and on time delivery.
QMS: Our Quality Management System
We maintain our QMS (quality management system) based upon ISO 9001 and ISO 14385*.
Sketch Models, Iterative Form Study, Full-Working Prototypes
Abstrategy Design has a full model shop where we create sketch-models and working prototypes of the products we design. We have state of the art 3D printers both in Fused Filament and SLA.
Verify, Explore, Research, Develop, Test, Re-Verify, Create, Implement, Post-Evaluate
After we verify your objectives and establish a development path with you, our team gets to work researching competitive or inter-related products as well as user experience, all to inform the design path.
Assist You with Collateral Presentation & Go To Market Strategy and Execution
We will sketch and ideate, draft initial CAD, for internal and/or external stakeholder presentations, work in our shop to make sketch models for scale and user interface. We engage in deep dives for DFM and interact with dozens of manufacturers during the development process.
Abstrategy Design’s Mechanical Engineering staff build 3D CAD models and publish interim to full Bills of Materials (BOM’s) for sourcing. Our PM team team can assist our clients in handing off to any manufacturer they specify, manage the manufacturing process for our clients, or in some cases, we can procure the product for our clients.
Not Only For Our Clients
Abstrategy Design has self developed and marketed products of our own in kitchen food prep appliances and gadgets, connected home electronics, sporting goods and hardware devices.
