Innovating and influencing future human experiences through design remains Hatch Duo's beacon. As we merge human creativity with AI prowess, we join hands with the globe's forefront companies, not just envisioning but actualizing new product categories.

Our Approach

We're different. Trust us. Hatch Duo is pioneering the future of industrial design and product engineering by seamlessly integrating Artificial Intelligence. We’re not just a design studio; we’re your collaborative partner where human creativity meets AI precision. Together, we’re crafting designs that are visionary, efficient, and attuned to tomorrow’s market needs.

In the vast realm of design, Hatch Duo stands distinct. We're not in for fleeting applause or accolades. Instead, our AI-enhanced processes zero in on products that users will cherish, and that spur your business's growth. Every problem presents a unique equation; we solve it by tailoring plans fitting every client's distinct landscape. As we help you shape your vision (build your nest), our commitment persists as you soar towards realization and beyond.

Our Values

Results-Driven. It's about outcomes, always. With the integration of AI, we refine our process, ensuring that every effort converges toa tangible, valuable result.
Authentic Integrity. Amidst the clamor for the novel, we remain grounded in our authentic selves. Our bond with AI does not dilute but instead accentuates our stand for our beliefs. It's not just about tools—it's about ensuring that Hatch Duo's spirit shines in every endeavor.
Unconventional Vision
. True innovation isn't about reinventing, but about perceiving the familiar differently. With AI's power to analyze vast data sets, we spot the unspotted, thinking what remains unthought by many, ensuring designs that are ground breaking yet resonate with reality.
Efficiency in Time. As Hatch Duo's ethos always maintains: Time is invaluable. Our partnership with AI streamlines our processes, ensuring that decisions are swift, informed, and in tandem with the client's timelines.

Our Services and Capabilities

How We Work: We’re a remote hybrid design team. We have always been hybrid virtual design team, since our inception in 2018(pre-COVID). While we have an on-site studio office for rapid prototyping and collaboration, we believe that a remote/hybrid model gives our clients exponential value by giving them access to global design talent, saving them time and money on travel and transitive overhead fee markup, and allowing Hatch Duo to recruit the best designers who prefer to spend time designing, rather than being stuck in traffic.

At Hatch Duo, we believe that the future of industrial design lies in the seamless integration of human creativity and AI-powered optimization. Our vision is to create a world where designers can focus on what they do best – ideation, iteration, and innovation – while AI takes care of the repetitive, time-consuming tasks that can slow down the design process. To achieve this vision, we are constantly exploring new technologies and techniques that can help us stay ahead of the curve. From advanced machine learning algorithms to cutting-edge 3D printing capabilities, we are always looking for ways to push the boundaries of what's possible in industrial design. And with our team of talented designers and engineers, we're confident that we can continue to lead the way in this exciting field.
