Concept to Marketplace: Frustrations and Fulfillment in Developing a Design into Product

Schatz studio 4 - credit nat rea Schatz studio 1 - credit nat rea

We will walk you through the steps we use to successfully concept, prototype, produce, and market a new product. We want to inspire you to create and design objects. We have developed many processes for creating a product (design object) that we want to share with you.

We will share the joy and frustration, the beauty, and the literal dirt (clay). Implementation requires constant refinement and assessment to achieve success or to realize if an idea needs to be abandoned.

We live to capture beauty, be surprised, and solve creative problems with innovative designs. Most importantly, we love what we do. You will be inspired.

These events are being recorded and photographed. By attending, you give your consent to be photographed, filmed, taped, and/or recorded.
