Mako Design Featured on Creative Pool’s Editorial!
A big value that we stand for at our Austin product development studio. Mako Design is collaboration! Collaboration is a big part of what makes the Mako Design 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 to not only share to others about what Mako Design does and how we can help but to also understand and stay aware of the latest news, innovations, and updates happening within the design field. We were pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate and be interviewed by the editorial team at Creative Pool who wanted to learn more about Mako Design and how we work creatively as a team when we work on our designs and creative solutions.

Our Austin Product Development Studio, Mako Design, Featured Article on the Creative Pool Editorial!
One thing our Austin product development studio loves the most about Creative Pool is not only participating in their Annual “Most” Award but also how much dedication the Creative Pool team takes in honoring and appreciation 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 Creative Pool in order to help put out an article for their editorial about our Austin product development studio, Mako Design, 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 talks 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.

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?
