How You and Mako Design can Together Fight COVID-19

by | Apr 2, 2020 | Business, Community Initiatives, Company News, Events

Mako Design is a design company grounded towards helping to push innovation and inspire the design community in as many ways as possible. During these unprecedented times, Mako Design recognizes the needs of the many and is taking noble efforts in order to help give back to the community and use our design skills to give what is needed the most in the midst of difficult times. Thus, Mako Design is using our top product design services in order to do a lot of special things to help as much as possible!

Free Parts for Hospital and Care Workers

At Mako Design, we have access to a full inhouse design studio that is filled with tools and the right equipment that can help make important and necessary parts that are helpful to those working within the healthcare industry. Not only that but with our top product design services, we have multiple 3D printers ready at any time that can print free parts to supply those that are short on emergency supplies. We are glad to provide any free designs and free parts to whoever we can at this moment. If you or anyone you know in the healthcare industry needs medical supplies, we will do our best to make the parts that they need, entirely free of cost. For example, physically small, and plastic parts are what are easier to design and 3D print at expedited measures (such as mask shield pieces, clips, respiratory valve parts, etc.,). Please reach out to us if you have some small design parts that you would like to be printed as soon as possible, and we will do our best to help. Email us at or call us at +1 (888) 806-6256 (MAKO)

Mako Grant for Health and Wellness Inventions

As always, Mako Design is happy and excited to use our top product design services to take on any new and innovative consumer product or invention ideas that can help improve and benefit the health and wellness of humanity, and now is the time to act more than ever! Mako Design will provide grants up to 25% of the design costs for new products that are brought to us over the next 6 weeks so that we can work together to improve the health and wellness of humanity as quickly as possible. In addition to this grant, we will make sure to give these new projects top priority and will be fast-tracked in their development.

Mako Design is Mostly Fully Operational

As a firm, we are lucky to state that we were long prepared for the situation in which we would have to move our services to at-home work procedures for all of our staff and team members. Weeks ago, we’ve put this policy into effect and have everyone set up their remote workstations, including moving key pieces of equipment into staff homes! Most of our factory partners from around the world are in back near full operations, therefore, we have been able to manage most prototyping and production processes (with some delays of course).

Mako Design is eager to use our top product design services to take on and start new projects in order to keep our team busy and keep our charity initiatives going (especially with helping hospitals and care workers, as mentioned above). If you have an exciting or new invention idea within any product category that you are thinking of while at home, please reach out to us in order to bring that idea to life. The time for taking action and creating the next biggest and best innovation is now, so don’t hesitate to reach out and get your product developed as soon as possible for when the next upturn comes!

Stay Healthy!

Most importantly, the team at Mako Design wishes everyone the best in these tough times. Don’t lose sight of the fact that this is temporary. As a nation, we will come together to eventually beat this and prevail on the other side! Remember to keep social distancing, wash your hands, stay healthy, keep positive, and stay informed!  

If you have a great new invention and you’d like to learn more about this process, get in touch with MAKO here and visit our website to find out more. Feel free to give us a call at 1-888-MAKO and we can set you up on a call with our product analyst!

From design to manufacturing your prototype, research the players involved

If you are hiring a professional design and development firm to create your product, do some research before selecting the firm. This also applies to the manufacturing stage of your product. You may need to work with multiple manufacturers for various parts of your product. Does the factory incorporate alternative sources of energy such as solar or wind into the manufacturing process? Are outputs and waste managed responsibly? Does it take steps to offset the CO2 produced during manufacturing?
