  • Our business depends on developing high performance technology for microscopy based applications and providing this to our customers both in the form of OEM modules and finished products. We started working with DesignEdge about 5 years ago and their involvement has transformed our business. I have no hesitation in recommending them to any company needing to bring products to market with confidence that the required functionality and appearance have been professionally designed at a reasonable cost.

  • Our aim was to produce a design that was visually striking and that maximized performance for the user. Because the foot was replacing something that was ergonomic and felt natural to use, i.e. a real foot, the design had to be unobtrusive and intuitive, giving the user back their ability to walk normally without the hassle from a hard to operate product. We are delighted that the resulting design has won this prestigious award.” The Red Dot design awards have been running since 1955 and are one of the biggest and most renowned design competitions in the world.

  • With the now well established relationship between DesignEdge and the Genevac development team our latest system builds on and complements the cutting edge design of the award-winning Rocket. Design Edge worked patiently and effectively with the Genevac team, guiding us through numerous iterations of the concept whilst adapting to our constantly evolving requirements. They enabled us to achieve a final design which represents the now recognisable Genevac brand image of sleek lines combined with rugged functionality. One of their the best designs yet, we are delighted with the reception the Series 3 HT has received in our industry and look forward to working with DesignEdge on future projects.

  • DesignEdge has helped us to develop a simple and stylish production unit integrating a compact lens tilting mechanism. Their in-depth knowledge of the latest moulding processes and their expertise in design for manufacture has helped us create a business product that is intuitive and easy to use. DesignEdge has provided a first class service and a winning result and I would not hesitate to recommend their design services.”

  • This is an exciting and innovative project which could possibly revolutionise the sewerage industry. Being able to cheaply, accurately and reliably measure the range of flows that go on inside sewer pipes has up until now not been economically possible. However, this innovative bit of kit, which utilises microwave technology and has nothing invasive in the bore, can measure flows as low as 0.20 l/s equivalent to the tiniest trickle in the invert of the pipe, up to virtually full bore flows.”

  • Customers have since commented on how great the product looks, so we’re now in no doubt that using outside good designers with the right experience was the right thing to do.” Racelogic VBOX technology is now used by almost every car manufacturer and tyre company in the world for testing and DriftBox is the first vehicle performance meter with the ability to measure drift angle. Winning the Queen’s Award for Enterprise is the highest honour which can be bestowed on a UK business; it is considered the equivalent of a ‘corporate knighthood!’

  • Good design is now a lot more important to opticians, due to the competition. It’s now good to have nice looking equipment to let customers know that you provide a quality service. Our equipment now fits in nicely with the other equipment that opticians have in their practice. It’s been very well received in the industry. In fact so much so that we are now looking to modify other products using the techniques we have learned. I really believe it is the best union of form and function.”
