ISO 9001 in action: quality by design

29 Aug, 2019

Ambitious product design consultancy Simple Design Works may not have been able to match industry giant Barker Brettell in terms of decades of experience, but its established processes soon ensured a close collaboration was on the cards. Could having ISO 9001 help you too?

Our latest case study features Simple Design Works, a product design agency based in Herefordshire. The firm prides itself in helping clients develop profitable products and over 85% of their designs achieve commercial success.

With the aid of ISO 9001, the company has attracted a wealth of household name clients from Nissan to Schwarzkopf plus start-ups bringing products to market for the first time. Last year, the company’s established ISO 9001 procedures helped to secure a collaboration with Barker Brattell, one of the UK’s leading Intellectual Property (IP) firms. This relationship helps protect the interests of Simple Design Works’ clients and gives the company kudos. With growth already at 33%, the team is excited to see what the future holds.
