Innovative Solutions, Innovative Products

Founded in 1992, Phase One Design is a multidisciplinary product design firm which helps clients create innovative, cost effective products. We bring together all of the services that are required for product development; industrial design, mechanical design, and electronics design. Our experience spans multiple fields such as consumer products, industrial and commercial products, and medical and laboratory equipment and instrumentation.

At Phase One Design, all detailed development and design engineering is carried out Solidworks or Pro/Engineer 3D modeling software, which of course allows us to interface directly with rapid prototyping service bureaus to quickly deliver working prototypes to our clients. As a project approaches production, our relationships with both domestic and overseas production sources allow us to find cost effective vendors who will deliver quality parts on schedule.


We pride ourselves in developing long term relationships
that follow a company’s growth.

We work with everyone from start-up firms to large corporations. We pride ourselves in developing long term relationships that follow a company’s growth, as when our client Animas grew from 10 people to a major force in the insulin pump industry, ultimately being acquired by Johnson and Johnson, where our relationship endures.
