Q: Do you work with inventors and startup companies?
A: Absolutely, yes. A large percentage of our time is spent helping launch new ventures, creating new products, and refining strategy for small entities and individuals.
Q: Do I need a patent?
A: No, in fact it is often preferable that IP be filed after we complete concept development, refinement, and prototyping work. This allows for better protection and longevity in your patent filing.
Q: How do I know my idea is safe?
A: We will gladly sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) if you like. Please see this link for our standard document, or request one from your attorney.
*We do not require an NDA to partner on projects.
Q: How do you charge for design services?
A: Each project arrangement is unique and has different requirements. Please feel free to contact us to discuss a specific project engagement.
Q: Can we arrange a retainer for services?
A: Yes, we have many client relationships based on monthly retainers for services.
Q: Is it possible to pay for services in installments?
A: Many of our projects require a 50% deposit payable prior to beginning work. In some cases we can accommodate a financial arrangement that allows for smaller payments over time. Please contact us to discuss specifics.
