Patent agents and product design experts join forces

April 5th, 2011

Invention development company, Innovate Product Design, is shaking up the lengthy traditional way an invention is developed. The new service involves both patent agents and product designers working together for the first time, at the inception of a project. This greatly reduces the time it takes to launch a new product and get it on the shop shelf.

It is unusual for these two different professions to come together, but by doing so Innovate Product Design is able to make the journey more cost-effective and efficient.  In doing this, potential infringement can be avoided during development and patentable elements can be established.

“We have been trialling this innovative approach for the last 6 months, some amazing projects in the pipeline have already benefitted from this new service. Due to the fast turnaround time, and as everything is handled under one roof, we can keep costs to a minimum for the individual inventor. This radically challenges the debate of whether a new product idea should be developed initially, or the patent applied for first,” commented Alastair Swanwick, Managing Director of Innovate Product Design.

Innovate Product Design offer a confidential, no obligation, free review of all ideas to see if they are in a position to help. For more information about this service and others available at Innovate Product Design, please visit
