VISION TEAM

Taking those difficult steps into the unknown.

We inform a project with tangible insights to gain strategic advantage and clarity. We help discover the hidden tipping points that inform ‘game changing’ catalysts for innovation.

VISION TEAM

CREATION TEAM

find-out-more

Stretching out ideas and getting them to work in real life.

Creation is the process and journey from Idea to reality and the stages in between. We no longer talk about product design, and instead we focus on creating engaging and appropriate experiences that consumers want and users need.

CREATION TEAM

SURFACE TEAM

find-out-more

Getting on trend and adding the right detail.

Surface allows us to marry textiles and fabric construction expertise with our industrial designs. The department is made up of fashion and trend experts that can deliver print, pattern, themes and colours in a way that is sensitive and unlike any other product design or brand business.

DEVELOPMENT TEAM

find-out-more

Making it real.

Development is our Hong Kong based studio with a dedicated team of developers and DFM engineers. We know that travelling half way around the world can be difficult, so due to popular demand we’ve specially created a service that makes manufacturing in Asia easy.

DEVELOPMENT TEAM

We Take Businesses

From Ideas to Launch

Our multi-disciplined yet specialist teams make us quite an unusual Design Business. We marry industrial design with fashion, consumer insights with manufacture, and commercial common sense with great design thinking. Through a seamless exchange of experts, we’ve taken businesses of all sizes all the way from insight through to manufacture and launch!

We’re called Narrative because we believe that when it comes to designing commercial products and brands, they need to be meaningful to the people you’re designing them for. Many of our design experts come from an in-house background, so we know what it means to get a product to market, but we also ensure that we don’t loose sight of the bigger picture and the wider narrative. Why not get in touch and tell us about your story?
