Great product design is more than a beautiful image you can put on a Pinterest board. First of all, great products are the ones that are actually made. How it works and how it’s made is integral to a product.
At Tactile, our Mechanical Engineering (ME) team is there at the beginning of a collaboration. This way we can ensure a great user experience integrates into the entire process. Below are a few of our engineering project highlights.
The Details Make the Product
To convey quality, a product needs attention to the details. You can’t fake quality–well you can, but you’re not fooling anyone.
Our process is to collaborate early on with minimal manufacturing so that design changes are minimal after hand-off. With fewer changes, the end result can match expectations. And this saves what everyone loves: time and money.

Engineering explorations is critical for validating manufacturing viability.
Engineering exploration determines whether a concept is achievable or not. This isn’t optional in our work, it’s our development process.
Great products don’t just look great, they feel great. The smooth joint or a graceful hinge is the small (yet so satisfying) pleasure of our work. We take pride in the craftsmanship that comes from rigorous ME ideation, prototyping, and iteration.
