About Our Services

We look at product development differently

Evolve Design Solutions’ approach to product development is different. We believe that creating great products is an accomplishment, achieved through strategic partnerships with both clients and suppliers.

This collaborative process starts by looking at your vision of the project, and understanding the design challenges you face. We then draw upon the creative thinking, technical expertise, ability to combine form with function and the vast resources of our strategic partners, who are as committed as we are to your new product development project.

Treating product development as a partnerships program is a unique approach. It’s what sets apart Evolve Design Solutions, our created new products and our clients from the competition.

“Combining world-class product development services with the power
of strategic partnerships”

Project Management

We understand that to accomplish client expectations in a design program, a project requires planning and initial due diligence. We will define clear expectations and responsibilities and establish communication procedures and schedules. We are skilled at not only coordinating, but also asking the right questions which could make the difference between a delay and getting the job done on time. We will provide you with project progress updates at regular intervals so you will be kept informed and know the status at any time to meet your schedule and deadlines.

We have over 25 years of project management experience with small and large scale product development projects for small and Fortune 500 companies. Our clear, sound and proven methodology helps project management track milestones and progress to ensure and keep your project running smoothly, on task and on budget.

Project management


Information is paramount to successful design. It helps to define problems, identify opportunities, and to structure strategic objectives and design criteria for the design exploration and manufacturing implementation phases.

Our research tools and methodologies allow us to develop a market and user centered understanding of our clients business and to identify those attributes that make a product more appealing to the end user or purchasing decision maker, whether it is through functional and feature enhancements, ergonomics, aesthetics, or product colors, graphics and packaging.

As a result, we have tailored our research process to be sufficiently flexible to cater to their individual business and marketing strategies. While we transform raw field data into a strategy for product innovation, the result is a product that answers the needs and preferences of the customer, while at the same time positively affecting our client’s bottom line.

Plastics engineering

Plastics Engineering

Successfully designing a new plastic product or concept requires expertise in part design optimization, material selection, design feasibility, cost evaluation, mold design, process selection and prototyping. Our plastics experience spans over 30 years in applying this expertise to new product concepts in a wide variety of end use applications. We have expertise in the injection molding process, part design, plastic materials selection, insert molding, gas assist, assembly techniques as well as painting and decorating.

In addition, Evolve Design Solutions offers a full range of capabilities in Computer Aided Engineering (CAE). We can also work with you to ensure that your plastic parts are designed for successful implementation with any plastic resins and processes. This helps to reduce prototyping, tooling and physical testing costs.
