Who we are: Gordon Randall Perry Design (GRPD) is an industrial design company that designs products for start-ups and companies that produce consumer, medical, laboratory, commercial, office, lighting, industrial and contract products. We are problem solvers and the design solutions we provide to our clients are sold worldwide and are widely published in magazines, newspapers and design books as well as shown in movie and TV productions. Salability, innovation and quality of design for manufacture are hallmarks of the work created.
Who hires us:Our clients include individual entrepreneurs, mid-sized companies and Fortune 500 corporations. While the focus for our clients is product design and development, projects often encompass research and engineering design as a through-put to marketplace introduction. With this in-depth approach and expertise our firm consistently delivers successful solutions that are ready to be manufactured and reflect the cultural needs of the client's markets that they are sold in.
What we do: As a product design firm our focus is the design, development and engineering of products for our clients. And because a product's design must fit into the entire marketing mix in order to perform in a competitive world, we provide experienced leadership in branding. As an extension of these services our capabilities include creating memorable graphics and packaging as well as research, human factors engineering, production-ready virtual solids, mechanism development and functional pre-production prototypes. GRPD can implement turnkey development programs or focused product consultation with rapid turn-around. For a fresh take on the marketplace we also have experience in focused new product conception. In short we guide our clients from concept to finish with comprehensive strategies and support them in bringing their innovative products to market.
How we work: GRPD employs a design methodology that has been proven effective in the successful introduction of hundreds of different products. After marketing and engineering objectives are established and research is conducted we visualize, create and evaluate solutions utilizing strategic planning, branding objectives and production engineering criteria. Then we consider and recommend materials, manufacturing methodology and tooling approaches. Final implementation includes documentation, sourcing, working with vendors and supervising initial production.
Our staff: The firm has a creative focus generated by the well known principal designer and founder Gordon Perry who has over 35 years of experience in the design and development of marketable products. Gordon, working with his multi-disciplined staff of designers, brings to clients individualized attention and integrity as well as innovative solutions.
