There’s a ton of competition when you’re looking for a design firm to help you get started. We get it.
When you’re starting a hardware startup, it can be overwhelming to think about all the different aspects of the business that need to come together. One of the most important considerations is who will design your product.
If you’re thinking about going with a large design firm, you might think that would be best for your needs. But what if we told you that hiring a small design firm over a large one could actually be better for your business?
Smaller firms are more nimble and have less overhead—they’re able to adjust their processes and implement new ideas faster than larger ones.
Taking firsthand experiences working at some of the top design/engineering agencies and tech companies in the Bay Area, we realized how many people lacked the proper design and engineering resources to launch their great ideas properly.
As a startup ourselves, along with our extensive product design and E-commerce business backgrounds with our first business, Aggregate, we understand certain limitations of building a brand from the ground up.
Check out the video above and join Hatch Duo co-founders Jon (Principal Designer) and Mike (Principal Engineer) as they break down why you should hire a small design firm over a large design firm if you’re a hardware startup. Why do we find value in our design process and small yet mighty team over a more prominent design firm?
We live and breathe the same type of life to the people we serve, which is why and how Hatch Duo can empathize with a client’s business state.
