New Design Yearbook 2018

Medical design

Adding technology consultancy to its product design expertise means Renfrew Group International is perfectly equipped to meet the demands of the modern market

So says the annual review from New Design.

Once again, Alistair Welch and his team have created their New Design Yearbook 2018. This publication is in recognition of the designers and consultancies helping to mould and direct the industry at present. We are happy to be included alongside a host of the UK’s most influential companies in the field. UK design and manufacturing is a flourishing industry. We will continue to make a vital contribution to the economy for many years to come.

The New Design website says:

This, the seventh edition of the Yearbook, covers a huge amount of ground. We hear from design consultancies on how they have helped clients achieve success across the consumer, transport, medical and healthcare, industrial, and service design sectors. We also welcome reflections from legal and recruitment companies working alongside the design profession.

Especially strongly represented in this year’s edition is the product development services sector. Contributions from a number of rapid prototyping companies discuss how a bureau service helps clients to get the most out of prototyping (or indeed low volume manufacturing) in offering the necessary expertise to best harness the power of 3D printing alongside more ‘traditional’ processes such as CNC machining and vacuum casting.

Autonomous Progress

RGi is developing two small footprint autonomous vehicles – A development that’s a game changer for the company.
AI controlled vehicles represent a great opportunity for design engineering. Also, for competitive manufacture in the UK – not least because once up and running they can build themselves.

“We entered this sector quite recently and have already completed our first assignment with another in development now,” says Managing Director Bruce Renfrew. “We’re developing the hardware and software in-house and applying much of our current D&D capability in one form or another to this challenging yet immensely satisfying sector.”
