Flip Reel by Squiddies
Tiller Design
Flip Reel by Squiddies

Squiddies.tv has created a range of amazingly simple and creative products to help make the great out doors an experience to remember. Its first range is fishing products, partnering with Pete Evans, Squiddies is linking the fun of fishing with the healthy benefits of cooking seafood. Every rig purchased at the Squiddies website comes with an exclusive Pete Evans recipe.

“I can remember fishing when I was still only 6 years old, running the boat down the ramp, full of the excitement of a grand adventure. It’s been such a pleasure to tap into these feelings and create new products for fishing and enjoying the great out doors. We hope Flip Reel will give back similar memories to kids today. Squiddies’ mantra is ‘enjoy the adventure’. Flip Reel certainly surprises and delights its owners. Taking out the Best in Category award and this years Australian International Design Awards is the first of many to come, and very exciting. Squiddies is going to be an exciting company to work with.” – Robert Tiller

Tiller Design teams up with Pete Evans

Working along side Pete Evans chef and Kitsa’s Kitchen, Tiller Design has reinvented the humble storage jar. With integrated airlock valve the design of the jar makes fermentation of food easy, reliable and fun.

“Working with Pete and Kitsa is great fun. Creating easy to use fermentation jars which meet Pete’s and Kitsa’s high quality was challenging. Take a look at peteevans.com.au and check out the Culture for Life banner at the top of the home page. The proof is now in the pudding, or in this case the sides being served. Delicious can’t say more than that really.” – Robert Tiller

Shark Shield & Tiller Design Hit The Business on ABC TV

Shark Shield & Tiller Design Hit The Business on ABC TV

Tiller Design’s latest project is to integrate Shark Shield technology into surf boards. Shark Shield has products that create electrical fields around divers and surfers, these fields repel sharks. In this project we are using the fins as conductors and the grip pad as the interface between the conductors. This means we create extremely high performance fins which double as a protective shield against curious, or deadly, sharks. The technology has long had success, albeit with a low profile, but having been used and validated by the military it is now breaking into the mainstream.

“This technology is amazing, we are very excited to be working with Shark Shield on such a cool and potentially life saving product. Designing fins and grip pads that will integrate the technology onto existing and new surf boards is a key feature.  Making sure the performance of the surfboard is enhanced once the technology is integrated is paramount to our design thinking. We see this as an obvious add-on for surfing. Replacing fins and grip pad with Shark Shield product turns the surfboard into a shark deterrent. Check out the news story from The Business, aired on ABC TV Australia.” – Robert Tiller

Successful Quality Accreditation
Tiller Design
Successful Quality Accreditation

I am happy report that Tiller Design and Tiller Scientific+Medical are both ISO9001 accredited.

Whilst this is something which continuously ticks away in the background it is proof we have an exceptional process in place and a key reason our skilled team completes projects on time, on budget and to specification. Many of our competitors speak of having quality systems in place but accreditation proves it. We like the small certificate we now have and celebrated when it arrived, such an innocuous document but it speaks to a foundation of core skills which all clients should enjoy and expect, not hope to receive.

Our key objectives are, “To provide products, services and solutions of the highest quality and greatest possible value to our customers”

“This is all about placing a strong foundation of quality under our design and creative skills, leaving the team to create amazing ideas and concepts that will delight end users transition to manufacturing and meet client expectations every time.” Robert Tiller, CEO.

Australian International Design Awards 2013

The 2013 Australian International Design Awards winners were unveiled in Sydney last week at the Overseas Passenger Terminal in Circular Quay, with the Sydney Opera House bathed in the lights of the Vivid Festival as a backdrop. Tiller Design won two.

Our first award on the night was in the consumer electronics space for design of the Hive Labs Wifi Security Camera.

Our second design award arrived in the domestic appliance category for the Everdure eChurrasco BBQ.

“Both categories are highly competitive, winning puts our teams design skills alongside companies like Pentax, Breville, Phillips, Nespresso and Dyson. Once again Tiller Design shows how our highly creative and clever team is world class. Celebrations ran into the night and a great time was had by all.”
