CMF Design creates competitive advantage and boosts brand recognizability on the crowded market. It is about connecting peoples’ experience and expectations seamlessly. CMF design is an essential part of design team and product creation. CMF design teams are collaborating with industrial and UI design, business, sourcing, quality, marketing, material suppliers and manufacturers. The responsibility toward the business and supplier requires thinking strategically about the material technology continuum. Transforming the thinking on portfolio level will improve the quality, project timelines and impact the overall cost of the materials.
