Client: Equerry

Industry: Consumer Electronics

Raymont-Osman initially completed a tear-down investigation of Equerry's current product before concepting with the client on ways in which the existing design could be enhanced. Of chief interest was the improvement of the method for dispensing the polish, ensuring maximum usability of this key function - the eventual design emanating from this stage has since been patented, with the Raymont-Osman team drawing up the images for patent application.

In order to support Equerry in testing the market, our industrial designers generated a suite of high-quality renders and images. Following detailed customer feedback, Raymont-Osman created detailed design for manufacture and 3D printed prototypes, before testing for feasibility and manufacturability. In order to achieve maximum cost-effectiveness, the team continuously liaised with manufacturers on sub-component and tooling costs and undertook Value Analysis and Value Engineering. Working closely with these international manufacturers enabled designers and engineers to perfect tooling design and ensure a finished product ready for mass production.

Work on the Equerry Pro has continued past production with the provision of Raymont-Osman's support on marketing; helping the client to promote this innovative product, both at home and abroad.
