HATCH
DIFFERENTLY

Founded by an award winning team with over 20 years
of combined product design experience, Hatch Duo
designs compelling product experiences for growing brands.

We're your partners, first and foremost. Our deep expertise and proven track record should assure any client, large or small, that each project will be thoughtfully designed and meticulously delivered.

Our Mission

Hatch Duo's mission is to innovate and influence future human experiences through design. HD collaborates with the world's most innovative companies to catalyze new product categories and bring them to market.

Our Approach

We're different. Trust us. We aren't motivated by what looks good in our portfolio or design awards. We are interested in figuring out how to design products that your users will love and drive growth to your business. We listen and do our homework, diagnosing each problem to tailor specific plans that fit each client's needs, budgets and timelines. We’re here to help you build your nest and there to help you spread your wings and fly from initial concept to production — and beyond.

Our Values

Results. We value outcomes over effort.
Integrity. Being authentic. If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.
Unconventional
. Innovation is seeing what everybody has seen, thinking what nobody has thought.
Time. Time is of the essence, and time is money.

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.

Industrial Design

Our brand-centric, strategic industrial design process drives innovation, business success, and quality human experiences, all while integrating a keen sense of aesthetics with technological expertise. We can take your napkin sketch idea or your breadboarded prototype to bring it into commercialized form.

Our design process has proven to create beautiful innovative products that elicit emotion and influence the human experience, whether you need concepts or end to end design, we can help you.

Engineering/Prototype

Need an MVP or a proof of concept? We can help you. Defining the product through iterative testing, setting up the conceptual architecture that will guide implementation to get the product
into the hands of users to scale the product experience ecosystem.

Our engineers are specialized to work with industrial designers in order to seamlessly integrate feasibility, usability, and aesthetics. As you refine the end-to-end user journey and head to manufacturing, know that your products are designed to function beautifully and skillfully.

Leading new brands, digital intelligence, technologies and interactions to life through focused design that bridges physical and digital experiences. We help you define and optimize digital
interactions for on product, mobile, and desktop interfaces, all while being on brand with stunning aesthetics.

Are You a Start-up?

In addition to our traditional fee-for-services model, we also invest directly in the form of capital or services for qualified startups. We pride ourselves on being a startup for startups and understand the certain limitations that come with building a brand from the ground up. For years, we’ve owned an E-commerce business, and have firsthand experience building/scaling a company from the ground up.

Whether your goal is to establish your brand, ship your first product, or raise a seed round, we are ready and willing to wear many hats as your longtime partners. We frequently evaluate partnership opportunities, and will occasionally invest design as capital directly into your company. If this is something you are interested in, please reach out to us.

The core team is a mix of award-winning industrial designers and product design engineers, with a shortlist of specialists that can be assembled on a project need basis.
