You bring the idea. We'll bring the possibilities.

We want to set your product up for success. We want to see your margins grow and your sales skyrocket. And most importantly, we want to prepare you for your next step, whether it’s sourcing your own material, stepping into high-volume production, or coming up with your next great idea.

MakerB Studio is here to help you take your ideas to the next level. With roots in industrial design, we’re fluent in the design process of bringing great ideas to life. However, at MakerB we believe that even the best idea will crumble without a strong foundation beneath it. The real... (more)

Ideation

We'll work with you to refine your design and prepare it for production. The goal in this stage is to gather input from you about your idea, help translate your ideas into a manufacturable product while maintaining your design aesthetic and function.

Pattern-Making

Once a design is finalized, my team can create both digital and hard patterns of the design. We use a variety of CAD softwares to both create and digitize patterns, including Rhino, AutoCAD, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and Lectra Formaris. We will then prepare for the sample making process by testing all viable pattern options in a variety of potential materials.

Materials

We live and breathe soft goods. We'll work with you to determine the ideal material for your application, then we'll get to work tracking that material down for you. With so many connections in the fabric and leather industry, we're bound to find what you need. If you're looking for a material that doesn't yet exist, we can help you make the necessary connections to have your material custom made for you.

Sample-Making

With your concept refined, we're ready to take your idea to the sample making phase. Using CAD or Rhino software, we'll queue up files for laser cutting, hand stitching, hardware setting, and finishing. We'll as many iterations of your product as we need to until we get it right and you sign off on it. Once we have a winning sample, we're ready to start discussing production of your perfected design.

Tooling

Once samples have been approved by you and you're ready to bundle up the production assets for your factory, my team can digitize all necessary patterns, provide sewing/assembly instructions, and production-level spec sheets.

Production

With your design perfected, we're ready to get all the manufacturing assets in line for production. Our goal as a producer is to be as transparent as possible. We want to help you design your product so that it's as affordable and efficient as we can get it. The best way we see to do this is to measure every step of the way—production for us includes thorough spec sheets, detailed assembly instructions, accurate labor studies, precise material consumption, and top notch quality control.
