i4pd History

Our product design consultancy was established in 2003. The four founders had a vision of creating a firm that would grow alongside our clients by producing best in class designs. It proved a sound approach with over 80% of our projects derived from repeat business.

Recent Years

In 2018 i4pd transitioned to become an employee owned business. We have grown in size and capability, now offering a turn key centre of excellence of designers, innovators and engineers who collaborate as one team to deliver both eye-catching and beautifully engineered solutions.

Through our multidisciplinary services, we add an extra dimension to our clients’ vision and strategy, using the best creative and engineering design talent to bring both new concepts and improved products to market. The company also runs its own internally funded innovation programmes.
We integrate, augment or act as a turnkey development partner.
