Case Studies: Use of NCS in Product Design
GoKart - Innovative Award Winning Product Design
"In a world of information overload, good, focused product design is more important than ever. When the very future hinges on your ability to communicate with customers, design has a vital role to play."
Greaves Best Design specialises in unique state of the art product design and engineering, which is epitomised by the award winning GoKart Plastic Golf Trolley which won both the Horner's Award as well as the Plastic Industry Award for Consumer Product Design.
So why is the GoKart different? "Well it was designed to be!
From the very start we knew we wanted to use new materials, in a new way." Successful product development occurs through good teamwork and communication and we are delighted that NCS was used for colour accuracy throughout this exciting and innovative project.
