Years of design experience

Lean and local

MOSS&SCHMIDT is two guys, Yossi and Aaron, both with strong roots in Melbourne. We like to keep it simple so you know that every moment you’re paying for, we’re the ones working. We believe that getting a product designed and manufactured shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. We also believe that the simplest solution is usually the best solution, both for the design and for the bottom line. Most of all, we believe strongly in human-centric design to ensure that the product meets the unique needs of the end-users.

Engineers to the core, tinkerers at heart

At MOSS&SCHMIDT, we like to dive into 3D modelling as much as we like to get our hands dirty in the workshop. We’re passionate about making beautiful things and making them well. We’ve spent the last decade building, welding, designing, refining and calculating so you don’t have to. So whatever your scope is, we’re up to the challenge and can’t wait to dive in.

Meet Yossi

Yossi hails originally from Perth where he spent his days designing and building precision parts for race-cars. He’s always got some interesting side-projects going in his workshop, experimenting with new technologies and materials. A research fanatic through-and-through, you could bring up just about any topic and bet Yossi’s read at least a few blog posts on it.

At MOSS&SCHMIDT, Yossi handles:

  • Project and product management
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Materials and quality finishes
  • Digital solution expertise

Meet Aaron

Aaron is a born-and-bred Melbournian with a passion for the city, infrastructure and the products consumers use every day.  He’s a precision design freak who uses 3D CAD like others use sketchpads. With a strong background in production-lines and processes, Aaron knows how to get quality products made at the best possible prices.

At MOSS&SCHMIDT, Aaron handles:

  • 3D Design and Modelling
  • Offshore and local sourcing
  • Production lines and scaling
  • UX/UI research and design

Our process


Discovery and Concept Development

We begin with a discovery meeting with you to detail the scope of the project, acquire information such as engineering drawings, concept sketches, or specifications that you may have already.

We will collect your market, competitor and existing solutions research to understand the market’s best-practices, gain ideas for design and avoid reinventing the wheel.


Product Design

Using 3D modelling technology we will create initial designs.

Taking the chosen concept design, we refine the design,
applying mechanical engineering, ergonomics, regulatory requirements, cost targets and intended manufacturing
methods etc.


Prototyping & Testing

Taking the information gathered from the previous step we will work to produce detailed designs of the product. We will then
work to produce prototypes working closely with select manufacturers.



Having the prototypes completed and signed off we will engage the manufacturer of choice to produce the first production run. Project management of this process will be managed by Moss and Schmidt with weekly updates. 

Quality control will be done upon delivery of the product. Moss and Schmidt will ensure the final unit matches or exceeds the standard set out in the prototype run.
