The idea for Twistii, came whilst out on a night time stroll with Jimmy the Labrador!
Go time! Initial ideas, sketches and concept creation began alongside research into production processes.
We created our first ‘prototype’ for validating our idea. Lots of disassembling and reassembling of existing products.
After refinements based on our findings from the first prototype, we pushed forward with a second 3D printed prototype to further test our idea.
A third 3D printed prototype was created for developing and additional road testing.
The design and product prototyping was progressing well and we recognised the potential Twistii could have and the variety of situations it could be used in, so a Limited company was formed to best facilitate this.
Our fourth 3D printed prototype was created alongside a custom designed PCB for the electronic functioning. This version was created using a higher quality resin to better simulate production requirements.
Our fifth prototype was created to further refine the design in terms of size reduction and to aid manufacturing processes.
As part of our development and commitment to Twistii as a product and as a brand, we applied for and was granted a Trademark to help protect and look after Twistii moving forwards.
Our sixth protoype was created, at this point we were really refining the smaller details. The smooth rotation, and the clean finish to the final mouldings.
As part of our product development, we applied for a patent to support the functioning of Twistii and to ensure it’s uniquness within the world of torches and personal lighting. This was granted in July.
For stability and security within transportation, delivery and to help further enhance the Twistii brand, we custom designed the packaging with a clear aperture for easy colour recognition. This was subject to final quality checks and submitted.
Our prototypes were finalised and the colour choices were made. The button for production was pressed and our partners began our initial production run. The final packaging design was submitted the following September.
Twistii was completed and we received our initial production run, all boxed and ready to go!
