Why hire a freelance product designer? Taking a concept and developing it into a real life product is no small task. A product designer must be able to simultaneously create both an aesthetically appealing and fully functional product that will accomplish the needs of the consumer.
Recognizing these needs, a product designer must be skilled in a number of different disciplines. Art and graphic design are very important to develop the visual aspect of the product, while engineering and knowledge of CAD software are important to develop the functional aspect of the product.
Each of these phases can be very cumbersome and lead to delays if the product designer is unfamiliar with the process or lacking in some of the necessary skill sets. In industry, the product development life cycle follows a number of steps to ensure maximum efficiency while minimizing setbacks.
As an industry outsider unfamiliar with this product design process, the learning curve may seem steep and lead to significant frustration as well as setbacks preventing the final release of the desired product. The simple solution to this issue: hire a product designer.
