Our approach

Creating value through outstanding design

 

At Neko, we believe in designing solutions that improve the world around us.

Since 2005 we’ve worked with people who come to Neko searching for something different. Across all sectors, our work is design-led, user-centred and focused on delivering unique, eco-conscious solutions.

Our Design Thinking methodology helps us to gain a deep understanding of your requirements and objectives in a dynamic and collaborative step-by-step process.

A fresh perspective which ensures that the final result exceeds your expectations.

INSIGHT

You are the expert in what you do, not us. So it all starts with listening to you. What do you need? Who is it for? We aim to fully understand your vision, ideas and objectives so we can tailor the perfect solution. By researching existing products, materials, users and technology, we gain a deep understanding of what is needed.

CONCEPT

Curiosity and collaboration are our key elements for a successful team brainstorming and sketching session. Considering Life Cycle Design Strategies and cost implications from the very beginning helps us to discard any non-viable ideas. By looking at every angle at this stage we ensure a better final result.

DESIGN

We select 2 or 3 winning concepts and develop them in CAD drawings, 3D models and renders.

We present the concept designs to you and work closely to ensure that we’re on track to realise your vision correctly.

With your feedback, we refine the initial concepts and choose one for further development.

TESTING & PROTOTYPE

Every new idea has to be tested – whether the size, material, form, function – or something else.

For more complex projects we work with experts in other fields to fully understand any specific technical or social factors.

We use a variety of tools to prove the concepts and create scale and/or working models.

FINAL DESIGN

The design is transformed from concept to finished product. We resolve every detail in technical sketches, CAD drawings, 3D models and prototypes.

The final product is presented in renders, photomontage and/or scale models. Once it meets with your approval, we generate the detailed construction plans.

MANUFACTURE

Our industrial design consultancy projects can include engineering specifications such as suppliers, components, materials and finish.

We deliver all the information necessary so you can manufacture the final product yourself. Or we can help you by supervising manufacture with our network of trusted suppliers.

UNIQUE SOLUTIONS

At Neko you’ll find a creative and passionate team always keen to take on a new design challenge.

Our fresh perspective ensures that the final result will exceed your expectations.
