The founders of Motus Design Group witnessed the failure of many truly great ideas during the product development stage and wanted to do something different to see incredible ideas become reality.
Motus Design Group was formed as a unique vision of a Product Design and Engineering Services company that empowers entrepreneurs and businesses to develop innovative ideas and bring them from concept to production.
We combine effective project management with multi-disciplinary product development and engineering services. Project planning identifies key goals, areas of risk, and mitigation strategies to ensure the best outcome.

The 5 "i"S OF SUCCESSFUL PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
A formulated thought of a novel thing or method to DO something.
An idea is not good or bad, and contains no inherent value.
The best ideas have the capacity to unlock value by enabling an innovation to occur.
How can the idea create value for people? Innovation is the bridge between an idea and a product.
It is the most important, most exciting, and most often overlooked phase of successful product development as many jump straight from idea to implementation. Innovation is where the specific value proposition of the idea, and the mapping of that value to a detailed engineering feature set, requirements and system architecture takes place.
The devil is in the details. Implementation is designing and building a product that delivers the Innovation.
Good implementation requires skilled engineers and designers working as an organized team within a refined, systematic framework to ensure all the details of the design and project are aligned.
Innovation is not accomplished in a bubble.
Improvement is the process of testing your first implementation in the world and documenting where it can be improved to truly capture the value.
Bring your idea to the people.
Industrialization is the process of bringing the design through to being a manufacturable, certified product that can be sold at a reasonable price point
Motus is committed to complete transparency on project progress. Clients are provided regular updates directly or through web-based project management software. If any issues arise, the expected effect on the budget and timeline are explained so that you can make appropriate decisions in real time.
Our experience demonstrates that the best approach is to enter into a new project in successive phases. As more work is done, understanding of the specific challenges and nuances of the project increases. Typically, clients enter into contracts with Motus one phase at a time, with milestones, deliverables, and a “checkpoint” gate clearly stated for the phase. Having milestones and deliverables at the end of each project phase enables updating of project and budgetary scope with the most up to date information, which facilitates client review before deciding to proceed.
