Industrial Design

dg8 have an industrial design department which has the capabilities to design all aspects of a vehicle, ranging from external liveries to complete interior refurbishments.

We have worked with a range of clients to undertake high level ‘blue sky’ concepts through to full interior refreshes with schedules of colours and finishes incorporating all aspects of the new interior.

Within the last few years we have invested in our 3D visualisation capabilities and are able to produce photo-realistic 3D visualisations, helping our customers visualise their new designs.

Our designers work alongside engineers to ensure all designs are fully compliant to current standards, following guidelines set out in the current PRM-TSI standards, this includes carrying out colour contrast assessments.
