Established over 15 years ago, Hyphen is a design consultancy now based in Los Angeles (ex-London, UK) that combines great experience, knowledge and capabilities with a flexible, open approach. We specialize in developing highly creative solutions to functional products, often resulting in new utility patents for our clients. We don't specialize in any particular sector, but enjoy working in fields as broad as consumer products, sports, medical, industrial and public sector products - wherever the challenges are for new approaches and innovations in products with physical interaction.
We're a small team, made up of creative and highly experienced designers and engineers, with an incredible track record. You'll not find many computer generated images on our site. They're almost all photographs of real results. Real products that have successfully made it to market. This is thanks, largely to our technical-led approach to designing functional products. We don't leave the engineering until last (always a bad idea), but solve the difficult challenges up front. It means our designs not only look great, but work beautifully, too.
Hyphen provides a complete range of skills and industrial design services including styling, user experience research, innovation, ergonomics, engineering, prototyping and manufacturing.
