Creative and commercially excellent product design.
Fi is the product design guru within Fi & Becs. From children's accessories to hats, printed fabric designs to dog toys - Fi is creative, quick, inventive and she can essentially read clients' minds.
With 20 years' experience as a product designer, Fi quickly understands what you need to do... and how to get it done.
She's useful all the way through a project from early stage trend research to concept design, development and product manufacture.
We can help make your ideas come alive (not in a freaky horror film type of way).
If you have a new product that you want to bring to life, Fi can help. She specialises in 'soft good' product design, this includes products that are made out of fabrics (rather than metals or plastics). We know from experience that the term 'product design' can seem quite vague (and can mean lots of different things!) so, the type of design Fi can help you with is:
Computer illustrations of your basic sketches | Bespoke printed fabric designs and print-ready artwork
Technical specifications of your product to send to the factory | Colour combinations of your design
Packaging and swing tag artwork
We love it when we work with a client on their product and we finally get to see their idea launched in the shops. It makes us feel like proud step-parents!

Nice words from our clients (huzzah):
"I am so proud of what Fi & Becs have created for us.
Brand name, designs, words - they did it all and it was back to us within days of our first meeting - and it was spot on. It wasn't just about designs though. Fi's common sense, attention to detail, creative thinking and can-do attitude make her one of the best people I have ever worked with."
Barbara Harbinson, Chief Executive of Halifax Opportunites Trust
Some examples of Fi's product design work:
"I cannot recommend Fi & Becs highly enough.
They have captured exactly what my business is about and it has been really minimal effort from me, leaving me loads of time to create! Fi captured what I wanted in the first design for my logo and I was instantly delighted with it!"
