2017 International Housewares Show



It’s February, which means it’s that time again… Distill-PD recently combed through 150 entries across multiple categories to help select finalists for the 2017 IHA Innovation Awards. Winners will be featured in the New Product Showcase at this year’s Housewares Show in March. This wasn’t our first rodeo – Douglas Carpiaux has participated for a handful of years and was an on-site judge for the IHA Student Design Competition in 2009. Looking forward to the show next month – expect we’ll see a few of you there!



Farewell to 2016, Hello to 2017



As 2016 draws to a close, we count our collaborations as our most precious highlights – understanding that the experiences we explore and the work we create are inseparable from the company we keep. We look forward to 2017 with excitement, and wish to count our current partners among those highlights again, alongside some new faces…

Happy holidays, and happy new year!



Marking An Occasion



We would be remiss if we let this July come to a close without noting that it marks our first full year of business as Distill Product Development. It has been a fun and challenging year of deep familiarity infused with fresh changes. With over 20 years of collaboration under our belts, it is amazing how some focused and smart rethinking can change one’s world. Thank you to our partners in life and profession who have helped make this all possible.

One down, and an open road ahead for many more…

New Beginnings, Familiar Faces



This Independence Day holds a special place in our hearts, as it coincides with our own statement of independence. This July marks the start in a new chapter of our professional lives, taking over two decades of experience and collaboration to a new venue we can call our own.

We love the creative process (always have), but we’ve learned we love it best when it is effective and focused. We bring our creativity to your problem, but we also draw your team’s creativity to the surface and inject carefully chosen talents from our network to build upon the resulting mix. You end up with more in substance and effectiveness, but not in overhead and unneeded extras – a concentrated solution.

Exciting possibilities lie ahead, and we look forward to crossing paths with like-minded partners along the way to do fantastic things!
