MAKO Design Featured in Creativepool’s Editorial

A big value that we stand for at our Austin product development studio, MAKO Design + Invent, is collaboration! Collaboration is a big part of what makes the MAKO team work together flawlessly and stay in touch with the design community.

It’s for this reason that we put so much emphasis on communication, appreciation, and community involvement. This is not only to share with others about what MAKO does and how we can help, but also to understand and stay aware of the latest news, innovations, and updates in the design field.

We were pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate and be interviewed by the editorial team at Creativepool who wanted to learn more about MAKO Design + Invent and how we work creatively as a team when we work on our designs and creative solutions. Keep reading to learn more about our feature!

One thing our Austin product development studio loves the most about Creativepool is not only participating in their Annual “Most” Award but also how much dedication the Creativepool team takes in honouring and appreciating designers and innovative designs from around the world on their portal.

We believe it’s important for designers and the design field to have a reliable source of both inspiration and a “pool” in which those interested in design and design services can have a list to browse, learn, and reach out to in order to bring their designs to life.

We were excited to work with Creativepool in order to help put out an article for their editorial about our Austin product development studio, what we do, how we started, and how we work together as a team. Their article looks more in-depth at how certain aspects of technology have affected the way we work together as a design team and more about what keeps us motivated and inspired.

Our director of design, Tim Uys, took the initiative of answering most of these questions and talked more about the team’s design process, some of our greatest achievements as an Austin product development studio, and tips to other creatives who may be interested in the design field.
