Whether you are a designer, an entrepreneur or a new inventor hoping to make it big with your next idea, the design process needs to be structured and balanced to help you achieve the results you need. One of the hardest things about the design process is testing an idea out thoroughly and making sure it is going to work in the way you want it to.
One of the most important parts of the design stage is to create prototypes. These can be in the form of initial prototypes that are more rough and unfinished, then 3d rendered prototypes that will be representative of the actual product. It will show the form and all of the functions, allowing you to see how it will look and test its reaction in various situations.
You can also test an idea through market research, seeing how your target market react to your prototypes to create a strong product that people will buy into.
