UI/UX and Industrial Design

Design is in our DNA. We believe that useful, unique and inspired design begins with understanding the end user. Our award-winning team of industrial designers and UX experts are skilled in all aspects of design, from early research efforts to developing comprehensive visual brand language strategies.

We strive to provide manufacturable designs that offer a meaningful experience to the end customer, with the ultimate goal of getting you from blank page to robust solutions with speed and accuracy.

We begin with the end in mind by digging deep: studying societal and market trends, ethnographics, competitive forces and, most importantly, conducting observational research of your end user. We use these insights to design elegant and intuitive experiences that drive customer engagement and deliver meaningful impact for our clients.

At Optimal Design, we never allow our tools to drive our design intent, which is why we insist that our designers have powerful surfacing capabilities. Design can be used to make products look tough, small, technical, easy-to-clean, etc. When updating legacy brands, we can align new products with your current offerings or re-shape your entire product line. We understand what it takes to create a consistent and powerful brand language. At Optimal Design, there’s no distinction between design and engineering. Our industrial designers work in tandem with our engineers to ensure that every deliverable is realistic, cost-effective and ready for manufacture.
