HS Design’s expert team of user researchers, interface and industrial designers and engineers assists our clients with product and strategy definition though complex product launches. We have worked on numerous projects over our 40-year history with each one having its own unique goals.  We are very proud of our work and are grateful to our clients for allowing us to be part of their team.  Our works spans throughout Consumer, Medical, Commercial, and Defense products.  Each category brings separate challenges and requirements but relies on our existing User Centered Design Methodology and our high technology experience.  Our defined process has helped us create over 400 successful products in our 40-year history. 

Medical and Pharmaceutical packaging is where we started some 40 years ago.  We understand the unique and rigid medical industry and have developed surgical tools, diagnostic instruments and consumer healthcare products.  Our designers have been in the OR, surgical suites, central labs and understand the sensitive & ethical nature surrounding medical product development.  We value research and immersion to truly understand the environment a products exists in.

Our User Centered Product Development Process realizes every program has its own set of dynamics, goals, and requirements that make it unique.  We have developed a design methodology that incorporates a phased approach, which helps navigate our clients through the design process.  This detailed strategic method insures timely and informative collaboration with critical go/no go gates.  Our recommended scope depends highly on your needs and internal capabilities.  Our team adapts to your needs and guides you through the development process by following our detailed program management.

At HS Design, we integrate our insight, experience, and innovation with user needs and client core competencies to develop products that produce a strategic advantage in the marketplace.  Our combination of Research, Industrial Design, and Engineering allows us to design for diverse environments.  Our implementation to manufacturing makes it a reality.
