For nearly 20 years, Vertical Product Development has quietly consulted at the executive level to start-ups and long established public companies alike. We are headquartered in Palo Alto, California with a studio in Rome, Italy.
Our job is to make our clients look good. We have never entered a design competition, and we never will. We do not take credit for the work we perform for our clients.
We are not designers who have some knowledge of business. We are businesspeople; Design Strategists with in-depth knowledge of the product development process and an extraordinary talent for creating user-experiences that are cohesive, coherent, on-brand, and meet the strategic objectives of our clients.
We work on all aspects of product development, from primary market research and industrial, brand, and user-interface design, to packaging and animation.
We work on all types of products across a wide range of industries from consumer electronics to healthcare to military. We have extensive experience in the mobile and hand-held space and are able to deliver complete, ready-to-ship products across multiple platforms.
We are a boutique consultancy where a Principal Level Director will personally see your project through from start to finish.
We work almost exclusively by referral and engage in no more than three concurrent projects.
