Client Feedback, Davison News, Inventor Stories

Each New Year brings opportunity for our professional team at Davison to work with a diverse group of clients who all share at least one thing in common – they are all idea people.

As we begin working with each client and continue them on their inventing journey, we send them a Pre-Development Portfolio for review so they can provide feedback on their overall experience thus far.

After reviewing their Pre-Development Portfolios, these clients expressed appreciation for a clearer understanding of our 9-step process, the Davison® Inventing Method.

Davison Client Justin’s Dessert Carrier Available at Bed Bath & Beyond!

Davison News, Featured Invention, Inventor Stories

David Tutera Decadent Delights Carrier

At Davison, there’s not much sweeter than when we can help a client inventor fine-tune their ideas and turn them into new products. By guiding a client and their invention idea through our product development process, the ultimate hope is for product success.

So, what is sweeter? How about when products begin selling in major big-box retailers?

Just this week, the Davison licensing department announced that client Justin’s dessert carrier idea has made its way to Bed Bath & Beyond – online and within 35 select brick-and-mortar stores across the nation!

It’s a huge win for Managing Senior Directors of Licensing Matt and Bob and client Justin, who’ve been working to bring the dessert carrier such success since 2012. In reality, this further bit of success is just another piece of the success pie as Justin’s dessert carrier had initially been licensed to Love Cooking Company who later relaunched the product under their David Tutera Decadent Delights collection, after solidifying a partnership with the celebrity wedding and entertaining expert in 2015.

“Love Cooking informed me that the entire David Tutera Decadent Delights line is now available for sale at Bed Bath & Beyond online!” said Matt. As you can imagine, this news really helped to jumpstart Matt’s week and we couldn’t be happier for client Justin!

Bed Bath & Beyond Website

According to Matt, Justin’s dessert carrier and the rest of Love Cooking Company’s entire David Tutera Decadent Delights collection will be tested in the 35 select Bed Bath & Beyond stores through the month of November. If all goes well, the line could be featured on Bed Bath & Beyond store shelves indefinitely!

Congratulations on a job well done by Davison’s licensing department and to client inventor Justin on a sweet idea! Do you also have a sweet idea? Confidentially submit your idea here.

The inventor of the Dessert Carrier has not realized a net profit on this product.  The typical Davison client project is not licensed, sold in stores or profitable.

What Happened in Vegas… We’ve Got to Share!

Davison News, Hugs Pet Products, Inventions, Trade Shows

SuperZoo LogoSuperZoo 2015 has just wrapped up in sunny Las Vegas, but our friends at Hugs Pet Products took full advantage of the three-day national show for pet retailers by showcasing some of our latest pet products and packaging designs.

They’ve shared a few snapshots with us and today we’re giving you a look at all of the innovative pet product fun!

Paula Deen had quite the presence at the Hugs’ booth, where the company showcased items that ranged from Deen’s new dog food line to our client Diane’s Hydro line of cooling pet chew toys!

And, it seems that buyers (and their pets) thought our client Diana’s invention idea, the Chillz Comfort Cooling Gel Pet Pad, was pretty cool, too!

Once again, it looks like the products and packaging that we designed have made quite a splash with trade show attendees! Here’s even more proof from SuperZoo 2015 in Las Vegas:

Davison-Designed Pampering Products Stay Ahead in Trends!

Davison News, Featured Invention, Product News

Two of the hottest Davison-designed beauty products are continuing to pick up steam in the fashion world. Already popular with online trendsetters, the TheraPED  and the Manicure Multitool are featured in the Fall 2013 edition of Trends Magazine!

The TheraPED, a spa-therapy product that provides hot and cold relief for sore, aching feet, was invented by our client, Lennell.

The Manicure Multitool, invented by our late client, Cathalene, makes at-home manicures and pedicures a breeze with six essential nail tools.

After Davison helped complete the design for the two products, it didn’t take long for Health Enterprises, Inc. President Brendan Leonard to take notice and license the items.

Now, the pampering must-haves will be sharing the spotlight on page 56 of the Fall 2013 issue of Trends Magazine!

Deemed “the magazine” for Canadian fashion retailers, Trends provides Canadian fashion buyers with “the most comprehensive, searchable and up-to-date directory of suppliers and contact information available to the Canadian fashion industry.”

The Better Tether Featured on Lifetime’s ‘The Balancing Act’ Friday Morning (8/17/12)

Dare to Invent, Inventor Stories, The Balancing Act

George Davison (Founder & CEO of Davison) and the inventor of the Better Tether Ed Yoder (as part of his Dare to Invent episode) will be featured on the next episode of Lifetime’s “The Balancing Act,” America’s premier one-hour women’s morning show dedicated to creating trusted solutions for today’s woman.

Mr. D and host Kristy Villa (Friday, August 17, 2012 at 7:00 a.m.) will talk about the Davison Inventing method and the Better Tether before and after the airing of george davison ed yoder inventor of better tetherEd’s episode of “Dare to Invent” – the webisode series that explores what can happen when everyday people work with Davison to make their invention ideas a reality.

Ed desired a more convenient and humane way to tether his dog outdoors! He got tired of his precious pup’s chain knocking over the food and water bowl while the pet was tethered in the yard… not to mention, the dish and the chain were often in the way of the lawnmower! Ed brought his idea for a “better” tethering device to Davison.

Unlike traditional tethers that wrap around trees or unwieldy stakes, Ed’s tether is secured to the ground, eliminating an obstacle to pets, humans and machines. The divided food and water bowl can never be tipped over and the entire unit sits lower than the blades of a lawnmower and never has to be moved. hugs pet products better tetherA leash can be attached directly to the strong steel post, and the vivid orange color makes the bowl highly visible.

Congratulations to Mr. Davison, Ed and the Davison Creationeers for getting the chance to showcase the Dare to Invent – Better Tether episode to a national audience!

More Dare to Invent episodes and Mr. Davison will be featured on “The Balancing Act” throughout 2012. We will keep you updated on dates and times as they become available.

Davison Dads: EMS Marine, Inventor and Father Demands a Hard Edge

Davison News, Inventor Stories, Product News

Marines are tough and their brownies should be as well, at least according to Davison inventor Joe Springer. Joe preferred the crispy edges of his baked goods so much that he would pilfer the crusty corners of his family’s freshly baked brownies.

“I would cut around the edges and my wife and mother in-law would yell. Of course, it was me,” exclaims Springer. Joe created the Silicone Dessert Bar Pan to relieve himself of his brownie-bandit ways and to provide others with a neater and easier way to bake brownies and other desserts. Unlike metal bakeware, this silicone pan is flexible and remains cool to the touch. The 12 candy-bar shaped molds can be filled with brownie batter, Rice Krispie treats or cookie dough; and, each piece comes out perfect.

Not only is Joe’s Silicone Dessert Bar Pan a hit with QVC hosts, who proclaim “You’ve got a corner in every bite!” but he and his family get a lot of enjoyment and pride from his creation.

“The Silicone Dessert Bar Pan has benefited my family in a couple of ways. We have the pan and my wife does enjoy baking with it. We have given some to friends and it is neat to give someone a product that you have invented,” Joe says about his creation.

Joe, who will spend this year’s Father’s Day with his dad, son and the rest of his family, has passed the creative juice to his son, Joey, 14. “My son is always telling me of ideas of things that he wants to invent. He is pretty creative and the fact that Dad created something gives him proof that it can be done.”

Joe exemplifies how hard work and dedication can overcome the obstacles of a demanding market.

Happy Father’s Day to Joe and dads all across the land!

“Dare to Invent” Refreshes Your Pet!

Davison News, Inventor Stories, Product News

Springtime sunshine has just begun to prepare us for the dehydration dangers that hot, summer sun can pose to our pets.  However, have no fear, a new “Dare to Invent” webisode is here with a refreshing solution!

Tonight’s webisode is the tenth in our 13-episode series and features Diane DiRaimo, inventor of the Hydro Bone, her adorable Japanese Chin puppy, Alexander James, and our lovable cast of Creationeers!  You can absorb the latest “Dare to Invent” webisode NOW on YouTube and Davison.com.

Diane loved taking Alexander James for rides in the car, but she had a hard time keeping him hydrated and happy on long trips.  She knew putting a water bowl in the car or feeding him out of a water bottle was out of the question… but, she thought, surely there must be a better way to provide Alexander with on-the-spot refreshment!

Diane brought her idea for a hydrating, new pet product to Davison, where fellow animal lover, Curtis, and his creative team, got to work on helping Diane’s idea soak up success, creating an absorbent chew toy with a foam core.

This week’s webisode also brings back Clay and his eccentric product-testing ways, but it all pays off in the end!  Diane’s Hydro Bone was licensed by Hugs Pet Products, has sold in Sam’s Club, Bed Bath & Beyond and many other retailers, was featured on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” was a 2010 Dog Fancy Editors’ Choice Winner and has now spawned an entire line of hydrating chew toys!

Tune in NOW for all the thirst-quenching fun as Diane “Dares to Invent!”
