We work with some very inspiring people, read what they have to say about working with us…

“From the very outset, collaborating with designCORE in Carlow has helped to develop our business in not only design but in strategy. From the initial meeting the designCORE team understood what we wanted to achieve and really got the fundamentals of what HUB Controls was about. They developed a clear understanding of the intersection between the product and the user. At every stage they surprised and over delivered, pushing us through our comfort zones, a process we really enjoyed. The expertise and professionalism was to an exceptional level, it was a fantastic opportunity for us to develop our product design with some of the most talented designers in Ireland. The work designCORE has provided has helped us secure over 250K in private investment.”
Oliver Hynes, HUB Controls Ltd.

“The decision by Zephair Ltd. to engage with designCORE at the IT Carlow was borne out of a number of factors. Although we had what we believed to be a very strong design principal we badly need to have a proof of concept model for products for the next stage of company development. This would be used to field test a new product and more importantly to demonstrate the progress potential to current and future clients with whom we are engaging. We had honed our own design in house but needed the assistance and guidance of design professionals to make the product more aesthetically and commercially appealing.”
Mark Shirley, MD Zephair Ltd.

“We engaged with designCORE (with an innovation voucher) to bring our product from an idea stage up to a form where it’s now practically ready to go into production. From start to finish the team showed the utmost level of professionalism and expertise. Everything was thoroughly thought out, planned, and always beautifully presented. Very importantly though, at all stages, they showed a genuine interest and enthusiasm for the work they were doing for us. They provide a top quality service and it was an absolute pleasure to have worked with them”
Elaine Gibson, MD G2 Ltd.

“Our product had reached a critical stage in its development and we required a professional team of designers to translate our idea into a tangible pre-commercial prototype within a very short time frame. We chose designCORE, IT Carlow and it proved an excellent decision, as it was a great experience and partnership. Kim and Jack listened to our team’s requirements and immediately identified the critical elements of the project. We were therefore delighted when they translated our initial concept into a very exciting consumer ready prototype thereby greatly exceeding our expectations. We very much look forward to working with the team again.”
