Inventor Services offered by Peterman Firm GET STARTED TODAY


We are the Peterman Design Firm,

and we have a passion for

developing impactful products.


When starting a full development project, we start with a discovery and research step that looks at what is on the market currently, and solutions inside and outside of the industry your product will be entering. From this, and possibly your prior art, we

  • User Market Research
  • Definition
  • Concept Mapping
  • Competitive Analysis
  • Demographic Studies
  • Information Gathering + Inspiration Imagery
  • Product Feature Mapping
  • Ideation
  • Industrial Design + Sketch Concept


This phase takes the best concepts from our Discovery phase and refines the details of those concepts. There are two steps to this phase. The first is creating quick 3D models or physical sketch models (foam). The end of this phase is creating a single clearly defined and developed final concept with well-defined design intent, and details/features clearly specified. This is a great step to involve a patent attorney if we haven’t already. We have several amazing patent legal firms that we work with to make sure your product idea is protected.

  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering


Technical documents are required to produce professional prototypes or for manufacturing a final product. These documents range from 2D drawings and techpacks to 3D models, and can be sent to any vendor, whether we need a prototype made or full manufacturing. This step also includes sourcing the right vendors for your product, and final design for manufacturability. This last step in development is where final production costs are determined.
