Our approach

Our approach to product design consultancy is friendly, collaborative and backed up by over thirty years of practical experience. Our focus is on what you need to achieve from your project, and we like to start the process with a comprehensive and free briefing meeting. This will be followed by a detailed design proposal, which is also free. To arrange a meeting to discuss your project, just call us on 01235 833785, or send an email to mike@crucibledesign.co.uk.
