Braiform has a long standing and experienced Product Design Team who, during the hanger development process, consider many design and production factors that have been honed over our 40 years of experience.
The Hanger Design Team has in-depth knowledge of manufacturing technologies, production processes, materials, supply chain logistics, re-use requirements, retailer and in-house quality standards as well as how to best transport and display garments.
The Braiform product development process is adapted to suit each design project. Primarily, in addition to extensive market research, our design teams will liaise with the Braiform Key Account Managers and often accompany them to work directly with the client/retailer. Quickly moving from concept sketches to 3D CAD we can present photo-realistic drawings to give an appreciation of the hanger’s design. Rapid Prototype Models provide a real feel for the form and function of the hanger. Once the client is happy and the design is approved, the same 3D CAD files are used to generate comprehensive production quotes.
At Braiform we are always on the lookout for fresh ideas. To that end we continually run design competitions and sponsorship internships with some of the UK's leading Universities. Our connection with the world renowned Design and Engineering Department at Brunel University and commitment to our Design Team has enabled us to employ highly skilled in-house Product Design Engineers.
