"Ty Hagler, and Trig Innovation, has never failed to impress. His designs are cutting edge, yet stay true to the fundamental intent of the product concept. His knowledge of product ideation and design processes is exemplary and his ability to see and address technical concerns early in the product development cycle is an invaluable asset. Ty has always shown himself to be an excellent communicator and team builder. I would gladly hire Ty, and Trig Innovation, again for future new product development projects."
John Rudolph, Director of Product Engineering at The Home Depot
"We recently conducted an ideation session with Trig Innovation. It was a great experience working with Ty and his team. They were very professional. The ideation session was well thought out, having a variety of activities to keep things interesting and to get you to think about the problem differently with each activity, and with clearly defined goals. They helped create an environment that was light and fun allowing for a free flow of ideas.
An extra dimension is that Trig was able to take on the role of visual scribe. While most of us drew the ideas as stick figures or hieroglyphs that left a lot of room for interpretation, the scribes were able to capture the ideas in a much more concrete and easily recognizable visual format. This allowed other teams to understand the idea at a glance. This quality visual communication allows a sharing and building upon others ideas in a way that is not possible with lesser quality sketches. Perhaps the real value is that the ideas are just as evident weeks later when the core idea hidden in the hieroglyphs are long forgotten."

"Trig Innovation's animation efforts gave Mustard Tree's customers a unique view of our products."

“It was great fun working with Trig Innovation as we developed the short FizzLoc animation. Upon completion of the narrative which paved the initial direction, Trig Innovation spent a fair amount of time storyboarding the video so that we would have a clear visual of how the features would be conveyed. They took time to make sure each element was captured and worked with me to make sure I was comfortable with the approach. The planning portion proved to be a great time saver as very little adjustments were required at the tail end. Ty and his people offered numerous ideas along the way, many of which were incorporated into the final product. I not only feel that they gave me what I was looking for, I feel they are capable of much more.”
Phil Atiyeh, Engineering Developer at Product Innovations, LLC
“The first time I met Ty, he made an immediate impression. Since that time, he has served as a mentor to my graduate students studying medical technology innovation. As part of that mentoring, Trig facilitated a brainstorming session. The activity was exceptionally well run, organized, fun, and valuable. I highly recommend using Trig for your pre-ideation, brainstorming, or information gathering needs.”
Andrew DiMeo, Sr., Director of Industrial Relations, Assistant Professor at UNC/NCSU Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering

He is very personable and has been very patient with me when I have decided to make changes to numbers. Finally, Ty has provided great insights to make sure I am capturing all of the inventors' ideas.”
