Product innovation and brand development consultancy
We work with enterprises and startups to innovate, design, brand and launch
breakthrough technology products and services, fast.
Using design-led research techniques, we help you quickly uncover valuable insights into your customers’ needs, desires and pain-points. This enables us to conceptualise product and service-based technology offerings that will differentiate you against the competition, increase sales and open up new markets.
Through rapid, iterative prototyping and testing with end users, we help you design and develop innovative technology products and services that deliver a seamless customer experience across physical and digital touchpoints.
By thoroughly understanding your company, customers and competitors we help you to define a purpose that will guide your business for years to come and create a compelling brand that builds lasting customer loyalty. As part of this process we specialise in the simplification of complex technology language into clear value propositions and marketing messages.
We help you sell, by first helping you understand when, why and how your customers buy. We then create the digital touchpoints and marketing materials you need to quickly close sales, underpinned by a communications strategy that leverages social and traditional media, to help build awareness, secure investment and drive sales.
Speed is critical when innovating new products, services or launching into the marketplace. For startups, time is as critical as money; for enterprises, time-to-market is one of the most critical measures of success and is key to staying ahead of the competition. We help you press fast-forward!
We help you move fast by using highly collaborative processes to co-create with customers and stakeholders from the beginning and to learn by doing, not endlessly strategizing. With decades of experience creating and growing high-growth technology companies, we’ve learnt how to get stuff right, by getting it wrong first, fast!
Make a difference
Our primary focus is on companies developing new technologies to address real-world challenges, with a particular interest in businesses and organisations that are striving to transform lives and improve the planet.
We can do more together. We undertake projects as consultants, in equity partnerships or self-funded ventures. Let us know what you want to achieve and we’ll find the best way to make it happen.
Some of our clients
What our clients are saying
- CEO, The Chopping Company
The Chopping Company has been using Ryder Meggitt's and Futurefast's strategic design services for the last 18 months. Ryder and the team have a rare combination of talents. Their ability to think strategically, produce strategic insights and convert them into relevant, practical and differentiating product and service offers is first class.
In particular their knowledge of the retail energy services market and how householders segment has really helped us to understand the market better. I would highly recommend the Futurefast to any prospective client.
- CEO, The InclusIQ Institute
The InclusIQ Institute was just getting off the ground when we found Futurefast. We needed a strong identity to distinguish us from earlier brands our Founders had created, and one that would allow us to grow creatively. Ryder Meggitt was invaluable in helping us assess our options on everything from logos and type fonts. But perhaps more importantly, he went above and beyond by giving us a branding competitive analysis so we could think through our unique positioning.
Futurefast provided branding and also design advice that echoed our eventual product line choices, building a site that was cohesive with our products. I’ll look forward to working with them again!
- Finance Director, Oregon Timber Frame Ltd
Oregon Timber Frame Ltd employed the services of Futurefast to analyse the self-build market for housing in the UK, identify existing providers and explore the commercial potential for a market-leading timber frame business.
We were impressed by the thoroughness displayed in the research and in particular with the novel and innovative suggestions to tackle the market. Our brief for the project was demanding and we feel that Futurefast met, and indeed exceeded, our expectations. We would have no hesitations in recommending this team to carry out similar projects.
