Creating newer, better products since 1934

Our History

Founder Clifford Brooks Stevens brought many talents to the world. His greatest talent was pushing product design and development boundaries. Brooks understood the undeniable human thirst for memorable experiences and progress. He taught his creative employees and clients to understand. His mission was to help companies develop innovative design concepts that were newer, better, and sooner than their competition. His result - the unmatched legacy that you see below.

Throughout his career, many asked our founder which product design most won his heart.  Each time, Brooks responded... “none, because everyone would need to be restudied for the tastes of tomorrow.” The firm consistently helped clients succeed by pointing product designs toward the future while far exceeding the day’s sales expectations. 

We evolved, yet we carry this original spirit today within our innovative product design and development. Few in corporate environments have access to rapid prototyping expertise and tools within feet of their desk. We do. Our competitors claim familiarity with technology, listing tools on a website with no performing evidence. We wear it, catapulting technology to first understand and ultimately to captivate the end-user.

At Brooks Stevens, design innovation is a philosophy that predicts complex market needs through research, prototyping, testing, and experience. This core strength has helped startups to Fortune 100 companies achieve documented business success for over 80 years.
