Dixon Design + Development   -   industrial design / product development


In many projects intellectual property is a key element in the overall design process, and over the years we’ve had a lot to do with patents and design registration.

On some projects we’ve created an invention for our client, which has then been patented; on other occasions we’ve designed within the parameters of the clients’ existing patent. In either case we often work with the patent attorneys in the production of suitable technical drawings for a patent or registered design.
