PROTOTYPING

WHAT WE OFFER

At ISLAND8, we do the messy part so you don’t have to (unless you want to which we also love!). From the initial concept sketches to the final product, we ensure the process has been done correctly with meticulous iterations from sketch modelling to final prototypes.

iNITIAL FORM
ITERATIONS

It is always important to attain a more tactile feel for the prototype stage. We like to iterate simple foam models or card to get initial impressions. Especially when it comes to user interaction.  This phase often results in key findings that may have been initially overlooked in the brief.

REFINED USER
DEVELOPMENT

With the form following function process, we ensure that no matter what the product, our user is always at the heart of it. With refining the design alongside iterative feedback from user testing, we are able to get a well rounded solution to the product brief that has been considered more ways than one.

fULLY FUNCTIONING
PROTOTYPES

The penultimate phase is to test the fully functioning prototype. This is one step before putting it into large scale production.  The primary purpose of this prototype is to iron out any potential manufacturing faults or components are ensure everything is running smoothly as it could be a costly mistake to run straight into final manufacture to then find a problem.
