Product Design and Development


the challenge

The founders, David and Patricia Drabkin, came to us to turn their early hand-built versions into something that could be produced by a manufacturer to a higher quality level than they had been able to attain.

the solution

We took the general concept, left the parts that worked great as is, and focused our energy on the components that could be improved on or needed to adjust for manufacturing by an outside vendor.

the results

Through the conversion to production level design, improvements were made to the the product in weight and ease of use. This all resulted in a product that improved on their early versions and they still use today.


the design process

we designed a product that was manufacturable, collapsed, and was strong enough to survive rough waters


design assets

we provided everything from 3D models to manufacturing drawings and specs as well as renderings and prototype testing
