What do you need from a product studio?

Experience, manufacturing network and technical resources are essential for success

Q Design is an end-to-end product development firm. We work with companies of all sizes and stages, from startups to Fortune 500 leaders.

We engage early in the concept phase and provide engineering and manufacturing expertise through all stages. We offer design, cross-functional engineering, prototyping, tooling, sourcing, NPI program management and sustaining manufacturing support.

Core competencies to meet your every need

Full-stack engineering

Our cross-functional capabilities drive the entire stack of hardware development including mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, firmware development and mobile app development.

Fast prototyping

From bread boards, non-form factor proof-of-concepts, looks-like and works-like functional prototypes, to high quality demos for CES and tradeshows. Our rapid-prototyping processes quickly build prototypes to validate and demonstrate concepts and technical feasibility.

Mass manufacturing

Our on-the-ground Q specialists in Hong Kong, China, and Taiwan provide real-time and on-site support at factory sites. Services include sourcing, supply chain management, manufacturing program management, sustaining manufacturing, cost-downs, quality engineering and source inspections.
