At Porticos, we believe in our strong product innovation which we accomplish through encouraging design and product inventions with creative concepts and expert mechanical engineering strategies. As we work to meet the unique challenges of each project, we strive to be seen as a partner that can help support our clients as they problem-solve the real-world challenges of product design in cutting-edge and people-focused ways. With the ever-increasing necessity of cultivating a unique brand personality, the need for creative thinking has transitioned from the arts into everyday business, and we strive to reach this goal with our customers.

It’s important to note that innovation is usually not a naturally-occurring phenomenon. Like a plant, it requires the proper nutrients to flourish, including effective strategies and frameworks that promote divergent levels of thinking. Porticos works with the customer when designing their products to develop a technical requirement specification supported by research into existing products and key technologies that will be required. We do this through creative problem solving and asking questions that lead to big picture thinking. Our product innovation strategies also lead us to think of new ways that products can be used and new problems that future products should solve.
When you work with us, our engineering group works to humanize technology as expressed in our tag line “Product Designed for the Way We’re Designed”. For us, it’s more than a slogan—it’s a mission to look at technology from the perspective of the person who will be using it. Innovative industrial design sketches are created focusing on aesthetics and ergonomics and presented to the customer. No matter what the product, a high-powered satellite radio or an energy-efficient clothes dryer, we understand that all the technology in the world won’t solve today’s challenges unless the people using these products are taken into consideration.
