A new year is new opportunities for a top product development firm like Mako Design to shine through our achievements! One way that Mako Design likes to show our efforts within the design world is to participate within the design community to showcase not only the great work that our world-class designers deliver to our clients but the amazing inventions that our clients have approached us with! The team at Mako Design are honored to be able to work with such sharp minds in creating some of the most innovative and smartest designs brought to the consumer world. We take pride in the work that we deliver to our clients and love to see not only our clients delighted with our designs but recognition from other members of the creative and design community.

Top Product Development Firm, Mako Design, Wins for the Best Toy Product Design with Moonlite

To start the year off right, Mako Design was happy to hear that we’ve recently been awarded by IDA (International Design Awards) won gold in the best product design for children’s toys with Moonlite! The IDA award was made by a handful of designers, thinkers, and entrepreneurs who wanted to change the lack of recognition and celebration for the smart and sustainable multidisciplinary designs made by the talented designers and creatives from all over the world. The award exists to recognize and promote legendary design and visionaries in order to uncover emerging talent in architecture, interior, product, graphic and fashion design. Through the IDA, the award aspires to draw attention to iconic design worldwide and conceptualize what great work in design looks like.

Designed by our Senior Industrial Designer, Rob Colgan, Moonlite is one of Mako Designs best and well-known designed products. Our work as a top product development firm has seen that since its final design, production and release into the consumer market, Moonlite has won numerous awards and received major celebrity endorsements. As with all of Moonlite’s achievements, we are proud of our latest award with IDA and would like to extend a strong congratulations to our client, Natalie, for her great idea, and our Senior industrial designer, Rob Colgan, for his amazing work in designing Moonlite!

About Award-Winning Moonlite

Moonlite is an innovative children’s toy that reinvents the way that we read and spend time with our children. Right before bedtime, parents can spend quality time reading a projected story to their children through a slideshow story attached to the back of their phones. Not only does this make it easier for both parties to see and read the story, but also makes the story more visual, interactive and fun! Moonlite comes in an array of colors and has a large selection of children’s stories to choose from that is perfect for every bedtime. Having a toy designed by a top product development firm like Mako Design exemplifies that quality work will always reap huge benefits such as gaining large success by having the product be sold by major companies and amazon, instantly becoming a huge hit for parents and kids alike!
