Our Mission
For our clients to achieve business success with innovative products addressing the key factors of performance, reliability, cost and aesthetics.

Our Philosophy
We encourage a flexible and open relationship based on mutual confidentiality, straight talking, hard listening and deep thinking. We believe that design is a collaborative process and we encourage our clients to be involved in our design process and to participate at key stages to establish benchmarks on key issues; such as ease of use, product quality, styling etc.

Our Goal
Is not only world-class design, but also for our clients  to see us as an addition to their own expertise. Hillside Product Design's holistic and open approach can help you and your business understand and gain the best possible advantage from the product development process.

For a product to be successful, it needs to meet both the user's requirements and those of your business. Our design for manufacture consultancy service will help you to understand your customer and their needs or wants, as well as where your product sits within your market and any hurdles to overcome on the way to success.

With over 50 years cumulative experience, we can then take this knowledge to create a desirable and effective product which addresses the key factors of performance, reliability, cost and aesthetics.

To take a product design from the drawing board onto the shelf we can call upon expert knowledge of manufacturing and product specification, as well as a wealth of proven suppliers and real-world experience.

All our business staff are qualified to degree level in their respective disiplines of design and engineering. Our business support team undertakes the research and project administration requested by the project leader thereby ensuring design staff are used cost effectively for the client.
