ITERATE’s Newsletter

 

We have just relaunched our newsletter full of engaging, interactive content for everyone involved in our ITERATE community. The aim of this newsletter is not to bombard our subscribers with promotional content but to create a space where useful information, exciting updates and exclusive worksheets are made available to our users. We want to create a hub for our audience where they can become inspired, build up conversations around their projects, and engage with one another through sharing product design journeys and ideas.

 

Throughout the newsletter, we want to ensure the content provided always has our subscribers in mind. An example of this is our interactive guides. The guides focus on four areas we believe generate barriers when creating a product, this includes: calculating return-on-investment, recognising your target audience, understanding intellectual property, and creating a project brief. These guides aim to offer support to our subscribers before they approach their product design journey, ensuring they are equipped with the resources and knowledge needed to transform an initial idea into a marketable product. We want to help build our clients confidence when facing difficult design challenges and ensure they are able to overcome these hurdles with ease.

 

We will also be showcasing an insight into the topics we are focusing on each month; this will include behind the scenes content from the design team. This is to grant our audience a more authentic perspective into what the team here at ITERATE get up to. For example, this month’s newsletter highlights our participation in Movember, an annual event that includes growing a moustache to raise funds and awareness for men’s mental health. It also includes information about national geography week, something we feel is very important to raise awareness around and generate conversations about.

 

Case studies, from previous projects we have worked on, will also be exhibited through our newsletters. By sharing these success stories and the design processes and challenges faced and overcome by our clients, we hope our subscribers will feel inspired and encouraged to start their own design journey. This will also highlight how every design journey is different, and how the end result can vary. We want to show how every prototype created doesn’t have to be marketable and produced in a high volume. For example, the wearable blood glucose monitor developed with Afon Technology was created for clinical trials, and therefore only a small volume of prototypes were developed. A new case study will be featured in our newsletter each month to show the diversity of product development we are capable of achieving.

ITERATE takes on Movember

This month the team at ITERATE are taking part in Movember, an annual event that takes place in the month of November and includes growing a moustache in order to raise funds for men’s health. This year, we have decided to focus on men’s mental health, a topic the team feel really passionate about generating awareness around. With the design engineering sector being heavily male orientated, we feel obliged to use the platform of Movember to show case our support and raise as much funds as possible to help this fantastic organization.

Have You Noticed – Do We Look Different?

You might have noticed a subtle change in our online presence recently. However, you can be forgiven if this has gone under your radar; as we have quietly been working on a brand refresh and slowly rolling this out across our social media platforms without the normal fanfare usually applied to such an unveiling. Having built a successful brand identity and consolidated our reputation within the UK design and manufacturing industries, we felt that it was time to update our image to better reflect our evolving business values and to more closely align with the customer base we now serve.

INSIDE ITERATE: Gethin Roberts on Why You Should Share Your Design Budget

INSIDE ITERATE is back, taking on a subject that’s a vital part of the new product development process, inspired by Managing Director, Gethin Roberts. This subject is the value of being open about your design budget.

Here’s a scenario to illustrate just this,

You reach out to a product design consultancy who could partner on your project. The NDA is in place and you share your ideas, objectives, and ambition; upon discussing this, both parties become energized about what could be achieved during this possible project and the creative juices start flowing. The consultancy delivers a quotation for the project and then, everything stalls.

Inside ITERATE: Holly McSweeney on the Future of FemTech and Why Women’s Health is Not a Niche

The most recent thought to inspire our INSIDE ITERATE series comes from ITERATE’s Sales & Marketing Assistant Holly McSweeney who was eager to use this opportunity to shine a spotlight on femtech: exploring its origin, why the sector matters to all and what we can do to fuel its growth. Holly shared her curiosity in this area…

The fact that the very term femtech itself was only conceived of a mere five years ago speaks volumes, both about the incredible work done by the earliest femtech startups and about the attention that this sector is long overdue.
