What we do


We help to develop your ideas from napkin sketch to a product experience 

With over 40 years’ experience, we know how to handle complex briefs. We use strategic design to manage the parameters, helping brands bring successful experiences to life.

From sketch to final design.


We are professional problem solvers, making complex and technical challenges seem simple

As Einstein once said “Simplicity is complexity simplified”

Our studio is full of creative problem solvers, we manage problems in various ways to create innovative solutions. We research thoroughly then sketch, rig build, test and prototype ideas in-house to overcome technical obstacles.

Refining fuctionality through prototype phases.


We have a broad portfolio of product design & brand strategy as well as the knowlegebase to support your project.

The SCA team has a diverse range of expertise including; Industrial design, brand strategy, user experience, user interface, robotics, engineering, leatherwork, graphic design, psychology, exhibition design, metalwork, CNC machining, injection moulding, 3D printing, metal fabrication, 3D prototyping and many more…

Our skills are in understanding the market and most importantly the user, working collaboratively towards a successful product.

From precision CNC components to storefront signage design, SCA have a diverse skillset.


We’ll work together with you to deliver functional, beautiful and lasting products

Our approach is collaborative. We develop constructive dialogue and relationships early on, outlining the bigger picture and understanding the market and consumer. We follow an iterative and fast paced development process, both hands on and involving lots of feedback from our clients.

Products designed to last a lifetime and our stand designed to promote the artisan craftsmen and women of an entire prefecture in Japan.


Our Expertise


Industrial Design

This is the nuts and bolts of what we do at the studio.  This involves taking an idea, concept or existing prototype and preparing it for manufacture.

Product Strategy

We’ve been guiding businesses with their product strategy for over 40 years. Normally this starts with extensive research into the market and user needs informing us on the the direction needed in developing new product ranges for a brand.



Development Prototyping

This may involve building a rig to test a mechanism, 3D printing parts to test fit or soldering up a prototype component set up to test electronics.  We always find a way of solving a problem in house where possible.

Robotics & Technology

This may involve building a rig to test a mechanism, 3D printing parts to test fit or soldering up a prototype component set up to test electronics.  We always find a way of solving a problem in house where possible.



Identity Design

This is the nuts and bolts of what we do at the studio.  This involves taking an idea, concept or existing prototype and preparing it for manufacture.

3D Graphic Applications

This is the nuts and bolts of what we do at the studio.  This involves taking an idea, concept or existing prototype and preparing it for manufacture.


Our approach

Although creativity is never quite linear, we guide our projects using some theories and structures that we’ve been developing over the last few decades.  These allow us to get consistent results and review our position at any time in a project.

The SCA Journey

We strive to innovative designs that are inspirational, aspirational, accessible and desirable. Eschewing one set prescribed formula, we favour a collaborative approach with our clients, working as closely, or as independently, as each individual brief requires, tailoring our process to get the best results for each individual client.

Our strong-held belief that ‘simplicity is the essence of elegance’ underpins our design thinking. Understanding the nuts & bolts of manufacturing is essential to our design ethos ‘form follows fabrication’.

The SCA Value Equation

We believe that perception is reality and that the job of design is to make ideas successful, to create value for clients and customers by providing them with desirable and covetable objects and experiences.

We champion a ‘concept to consumer’ focus, by exploring the user-centric experience. Often, what separates success from failure is timing therefore, we pay particular attention to market trends, whilst designing in longevity.
