How to find the right product designer ?

Hi all,

I am from Malaysia (not a designer myself) and currently am working on a consumer product. So far i’ve managed to get the first working model but its not up to my expectations so far.

I’ve finally decided to come over to California to look for the right industrial designer who can sync with my ideas and bring it to the next level.

How do i choose the right Industrial designer/Firm? I see there are a lot of them based here in California ranging from the smaller ones right up to the bigger well known firms.

Any inputs would be appreciated.


Look at the projects that they have done and then see what fits your product the best I suppose. Look online and see what firms have related expertise to your product.
