About Design Opinions

We conduct research into
on design-related issues and design-related creations.

We help designers and manufacturers with useful research-based insights.

This is not design by committee;
it's informed feedback for an iterative creative process.


By offering pragmatic methodologies,
we make reliable design research affordable
and accessible to almost anyone.

Proprietary Survey Platform

When appropriate, we offer our own unique survey platform, specifically created for design-related evaluations. Learn more


We offer ad-hoc support to
