Real product design and development is not only about a product’s appearance, but how it exists, feels, works in the hands of the user. Catalyst takes a holistic, intuitive approach to design. We consider not only how a product looks on the outside, but how it will work on the inside. Appearance counts, but functionality matters.
What Our Clients Say
The Catalyst Difference
Catalyst was started by product designers, engineers, and manufacturers for product designers, engineers, and manufacturers. Our facility is like no other design consultancy. We understand that different departments have different needs which must coalesce for successful products to happen. Innovative design concepts are critical, but they are meaningless if they cannot become reality. We offer complete creative services through plastic injection, manufacturing, and assembly—entirely in-house—we do not outsource. This not only protects our client’s intellectual property but ensures that the products we design can be cost-effectively prototyped, tested, manufactured, serviced, packaged, distributed. Many product development firms claim they understand design through manufacturing, but do they have the confidence to offer those services in-house? Catalyst does.
