DCA Design International Ltd
DCA is one of the world’s leading product design and development consultancies, helping our clients achieve success through great product design. We are very proud to have our work for international clients recognised with our second Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.
Our multidisciplinary team has an exceptional track record of tackling strategically important and technically demanding projects to deliver commercially successful products for our clients. DCA has generated over 2000 patent applications for its clients in recent years and won over 70 major design awards in the past 10 years, including multiple Red Dot Awards, IF Awards, Good Design Awards and Design Business Association Design Effectiveness Awards; as well as Medical Design Excellence Awards, a Braun Prize and a CES Innovation Award.
Our largest sector, Medical and Scientific, led by managing director Rob Woolston, has developed a world-class expertise in medical device design. This has led to award-winning global products such as the SoloSTAR insulin pen for Sanofi Aventis. Most recently, DCA partnered with Sanofi to design and develop the AllStar® Pro reusable pen injector, intended to help people living with diabetes across European markets. Other recently released medical work includes creating a future vision for the industrial design and usability of the Elekta Unity, the only magnetic resonance radiation therapy (MR/RT) system that integrates a MRI scanner with an advanced linear accelerator to create a new paradigm for ‘hard to treat’ cancer care.
DCA’s Transport sector has seen significant launches for global companies, including designing the passenger interiors and driver’s cab for the new Hitachi Class 800 UK Intercity trains to successfully meet the requirements of a multi-stakeholder driven project within the constraints of a Government-led procurement process. Most recently, our transport team has designed the Navigator, a new flagship coach for China’s Xiamen Golden Dragon Company.
Our Consumer team is recognised as a global leader in FMCG and consumer healthcare design, with many significant launches for some of the world’s leading brands, including RB’s Airwick, Veet and Scholl brands, GSK’s Sensodyne and Aquafresh oral care brands and Unilever’s Lynx, Sure and Dove deodorant brands. The team has also had export success with two US start-up companies. DCA helped APS develop MiniMist, an innovative technology and cost competitive construction approach to produce a propellant-free, mist-like spray with a significantly lower carbon footprint than aerosols, while for LifeFuels, we helped create the world’s first connected, portable drink maker that can create a personalised nutritional drink wherever life takes you.
