Allan Thorne III
Inventor - Straptor
As a individual inventor, I had a product in my hands and needed support to help me bring it to market. A referral sent me to Chris Hawker at Trident Design. Recognizing the success Trident Design has had with previous products, there was no question about using their skills. They have the ability to give "life" to a new product. Chris immediately saw the potential in my product and jumped on board. The Straptor was born. Chris's knowledge of licensing agreements assisted in landing a licensing agreement with a very large tool manufacturing company.
From one individual inventor to another, I would not hesitate to use Trident Design in the future!
Inventor - PaperPlane
I found Trident Design after browsing the Internet for a kind of adviser in the complex path of developing an invention already in the first stages of design and prototype. What I found was a friendly, experienced, and well coordinated team of excellent professionals easy to work with, and even exhibiting a great sense of humor in our exchanges (I even took the liberty of sending them two or three basic comic strips sketched by me about Trident Design, and it was great fun for all...). Our joint work was fluid, dynamic and mutually informative. Beautiful concepts of my idea unfolded in the proccess, injecting a great deal of optimism in me. I took part in all the work sessions with Trident Design's team while being outside of the USA (I live abroad) and it was easy and very productive.
Inventor - DaySpot/Dose Tracker
Commencing our first invention with the Trident Team, I didn't know what to expect in regards to the level of quality and timeliness of service they would provide. I had expectations, but was unsure if they would be met or even exceeded. Reflecting on our creative journey together, now that our product has a patent pending, I can genuinely state the team made it easy every step of the way. I felt my comments whether compliments or criticism were met with high professional regard and response.
Team members were prompt to establish conference calls with visuals aides that fostered a complete understanding as to where they were in the design phase. The company has multiple business connections to seamlessly order prototypes and craft patents - phases which could take months to research and finalize. Underlying all this, the ethical standards the company has been built upon are also noteworthy.
We are beyond excited about our product reaching the public sector. We feel our product will simplify the lives of many parents!
Inventor - Safety Dog
Like many individuals, occasionally I will have an idea to solve a particular problem. How often have you seen a product on the market and said to yourself I thought of that a long time ago, it should be my invention? Many people have great ideas but for a multiple of reasons, they do not execute upon them. I did not have any knowledge of the process. I did not know if my idea was good or bad. I did not know who I could trust.
A colleague of mine put me in touch with Chris Hawker, President of Trident-Design. Immediately he understood and visualized my idea. Chris explained the entire process step-by-step from beginning to end. He gave me his honest opinion on the marketability of the product. He was upfront about the risks and the rewards. I made the decision to go with Chris and Trident Design.
Working with the Trident Team has been an absolute pleasure. They are friendly, easy to contact and very informative about the various stages of the process. They have worked closely with me toward the implementation of my idea. When I first saw the Computer Aided Drawings, I could not believe it. My invention had come to life.
Recently, Chris and his team secured a licensing agreement with a very large company in the consumer goods industry for the Safety Dog. To see it come to fruition is beyond my wildest dreams.
You cannot find a more reputable, dedicated industrial design and invention development firm. I highly recommend Trident Design.
Inventor - Military Chair
The team at Trident starting with Chris Hawker, have all been great to work with. They have been patient and have explained each of the steps necessary to reach my goal. It has been easy to work with the team even though I am in Afghanistan. Any questions I have had, and I have had many, were answered quickly and concisely. The Trident team has instructed me along the way on what I should expect for a timeline as well as going into each step through the process.
I am very excited about my product and I am cautiously optimistic. We are still progressing on the prototype and I look forward to holding a finished product in my hands. I have no doubts that I picked the right team for what I want to do. I plan to work with Trident on other products in the near future.

Trident has been invaluable in designing my vision. They are exceptionally creative and organized, and thoughtful about every last detail. Trident's vast knowledge and experience with bringing products to market was supremely helpful and taught me a lot. The thing I appreciated most about them, though, was that I felt like they cared-just as much as I did-about my product idea and executing it properly. That level of commitment and excellence is a rare find, and I felt fortunate that I had them on my side throughout the entire process.
Thanks to all of you for being great at what you do!
President – R.S.V.P International
Let it be known to any and all parties having interest in or considering doing business with Trident Design that you've managed to stumble onto the proverbial jackpot. Thus it is very easy for me to write a testimonial on behalf of Chris Hawker and company.
I am involved in a "people business" and Chris is by far one of the most brilliant and honorable persons that I have known in my career. His design skills are second to none and yet he has the remarkable ability to understand his client's practical considerations. Prior to doing business with Trident Design, I painfully spent time and money with design folks that couldn't deliver a viable product. Chris's talents and efforts have added considerable value to our company. I also admire his dedication to the task at hand. Where others have given up or hidden behind a myriad of excuses Chris has always stayed the course. Quitting just isn't in his vocabulary. I couldn't imagine employing any other firm to do our corporate design and product development undertakings.
Look no further than Trident Design.

"Trident Design" is synonyms with "Creativity within Practicality."
I have found the Trident Team to display some very good traits; which seem to be built into the Trident Design culture:
• Very easy to work with
• Good listeners
• Very flexible
• Think creatively while not losing sight of practicality
• Very aware of Manufacturing Processes
• Willing to try ideas to see if they are practical
• Think in terms of "costs to build" works with the value of the product
• Trident also surrounds itself with many other talents to help get the job done as in my case of needing an Electrical Engineer
And in some cases we learned from each other keeping the goal in focus.
Fabulous Peeler! - JBC (Santa Rosa, CA)
"I use this peeler every single day to peel fresh fruit for my smoothie. I love mine so much I bought 3 more, one for every woman in my family. I can peel mangoes in one long strip. Ripe kiwis - no problem! The peels might be a little too thin on carrots and potatoes - it's hard to tell where you've peeled a carrot. But it's actually fun to peel them, so no worries"
5.0 out of 5 stars
Amazing peeler!!! - Megan (Wichita, KS United States)
"This is the best peeler I've ever used. It peels smoothly, the head can be rotated depending on what I'm peeling and it fits comfortably in my hand. I own two and have bought 2 for wedding presents."
The Perfect Peeler - creative chef
"The title says it all. It is now one of my favorite tools in the kitchen."

Great Peeler - Charleze Black (Florida)
"I love this peeler. I have about 6 peelers in my drawer always thinking I would find the perfect peeler. Well, I finally did, the Kyocera peeler. Try it, you'll love it"
a fabulous little squid for under the desk! - "Lula" (Santa Cruz, Ca)
"this is the most fantastic "powerstrip" i have ever connected cords to. they all fit, without a single wasted outlet and it is designed so nicely; who ever put this much thought in to a powerstrip before? why didn't someone think of this earlier? i for one am a fan. genius!"
great product - Sara (New York USA)
"i have so many weird shaped plugs, that i always end up losing an outlet or two in the regular power strips. This works great and you get full use out of your product."
Squids rule - P. M. Ayers "scrumpa" (Midwest USA)
"This is the greatest invention since sliced bread. I had bought some previously but none had the powersentry feature. I love these, as you can use them with the large converters that usually come with electric appliances and you don't have to spend extra for those little 6" extension cords."

Best on the Market
"I own this scraper and it is the best one on the market right now. I have had all the others and the long scrapers brake or just don't work, so do yourself a favor and get the best the first time. Don't mess with the rest get the best.""
"This is the best tool ever!!! I can't believe I never had this before. It makes scraping your tank so much easier."
They work! - BJ Young (Ft Worth Tx)
"These goggles are a god send. My eyes have become more sensitive to the fumes, and these really work. Such a relief."
Life is better in the kitchen! - Mrs. M (Florida)
"I love to cook....but chopping onions makes me cry and cry. No longer! I now put on my "super hero" onion glasses and am completely resistant to the evil onion fumes! If only they could do the dishes too!"
Onion Goggles RULE! - Sarah T. Janus (Roseville, CA, USA)
"I have tried every trick in the book. Only breathing through my month, rinsing onions in cold water, put a potato out on the counter, put a piece of bread on your head, etc. NOTHING worked. I get big sloppy sob-like tears that stream down my face from my burning eyes. It gets so bad, usually, that I have to walk away from what I'm cutting, since I can't SEE anything anymore. ALL of that has come to an END! For Christmas this year my husband bought me these amazing Onion Goggles. I tried them, with trepidation - for the first time. I've tried the goggle trick before, and it's never worked. But this time - with these magical goggles - it WORKED! I chopped away, minced and sliced - chopped and chopped - through 4 onions and NOT A SINGLE TEAR! Not a bit of burning! I was in disbelief. Could these simple things really have worked?! Since then I have chopped up onions another 9 times. Each time I use my Onion Goggles and each time - NOT A SINGLE TEAR! They work perfectly EVERY SINGLE TIME. I've made my cousin try them too, while she was visiting, to make sure it wasn't just me. It works for her too.
Although they make me look slightly like a green eyed bug, I wear them each and every time I need to chop up onions. I think I make a pretty cute bug anyway!"
EYE SAVER - Erica B. Turansky (PA, USA)
"OMG! this is my favorite amazon find ever! I am very VERY sensative to onion fumes and these REALLY work!"
