We created an innovative design solution for a shirt carrier for business cyclists and travellers. The patented product enables the user to transport a shirt crease-free from home to office.
This was the client's first product venture and enabled them to launch a successful new brand. Quickly the product was stocked by Marks & Spencer and became the fastest selling product at The Conran Shop in 2011.
The 'Shirtshuttle' was designed to be robust and protective but also deliberately styled to appeal to the young business commuter/ traveller. The 3D brand style we developed established a strong identity for the company's products.
The design was developed through a range of initial sketches for discussion with the client, then CAD modelled and prototyped. We used our extensive contacts to identifiy appropriate manufacturers in Europe and the Far East, obtained costings for production, and made final recommendations and specifications for manufacture.
Following the success of the product, Commuter Technologies has become Patrona, with further backing from a syndicate of sucessful investors including Sir Terrance Conran.
"Ed and Jedco did a fantastic job on my product. They understood my brief quickly, priced competitively and delivered a great product on time, without any surprises. The design was simple to manufacture, which meant we were on the shelves in the shortest possible time. Highly recommended. "
