Working indirectly with Manitowoc Beverage Systems has allowed Design Inch to undertake and successfully complete design projects with Anheuser-Busch InBev, SAB Miller, Scottish & Newcastle, etc, these major beer breweries have strong brand portfolios and we at Design Inch had the opportunity to provide design concepts for global brands such as Strongbow, Coors Light, Pepsi, Brahma, Hansa, Carling, Miller, Bavaria, Bulmer, Magners, Dunkin’ Donuts, TRUfill, TRUpour and Stella Artois.”
Within the street furniture sector we have also worked with Castit Ltd, a leading manufacturer and supplier of street furniture and exterior lighting in Ireland. We worked with them to successfully design and develop a full range of street furniture products called the ‘Urban Passenger’ which consisted of a litter bin, seat, bollard and a bench. Design Inch was successfully selected to exhibit this range of street furniture products at the ‘Designed In Ireland’ exhibition for National Design Week 2009.
We work with clients from project inception and concept design stage right through to computer generated models, photo-real rendered image and motion presentation for marketing of the final product.
