Product Design Consulting since 1977

Company Information


Fayram Design
was founded in 1977 by Rick Fayram.  It grew to a full-time consulting office in 1987.
Since 1987 we have been deeply involved with the development of over 150 products.
We offer analysis, conceptualization, styling, mechanical design, and production process debugging.
Fayram Design is committed to provide continuous support from concept through production.

Our philosophy is to design and develop products appropriate to each clients specific and unique needs.
We emphasize solid, manufacturable product design from concept to production.
With over 20 years of professional experience, we are often asked to design the products' appearance. The aesthetics are developed in equilibrium with our mechanical product design program.

We are mindful of the time constraints due to rapid market cycles, and are resolved to assist clients in achieving deadlines. Often we work in conjunction with clients’ staff engineers and production vendors to render fast track programs. 
We emphasize listening carefully to our client needs, tight program management, and close communication.
Our results are thoroughly documented, highly manufacturable and cost effective.

Our projects are executed on fast Intel processor computers, generating 2D drawings and 3D computer-data solid models. Rapid prototyping and paperless databases are utilized on many projects.

In this era of rapid change, we emphasize long term relationships with Clients.  For example; CacheFlow was a client since their inception in 1996, and we have continuing to provide them with design services in their updated name BlueCoat.
