OVANS Design combines artistic styling with design for manufacturability. I create robust Solidworks CAD models directly used to manufacture your product.


My name is Craig Ovans, the founder and sole designer at Ovans Design, LLC located in the East Valley of Phoenix, Arizona. After dedicating 16 years working for product design, engineering and development firms, I created my own business in 2017 to serve those in need of my expertise at a reasonable price. I am your personal design resource and teammate for any phase of the product development process.


I have designed products in many markets including medical and hearing health, sport and fitness, recreation, consumer electronics, housewares, lawn and garden, hobby and craft, pet accessories, food and beverage goods, personal defense, military and tactical devices, aviation, e-mobility, and off-road vehicles.


Whether you are an inventor, startup, entrepreneur, small business, or large corporation I can help you develop new products or improve existing products.

If you are a design or engineering firm that is short staffed, overloaded, or just looking for a fresh outlook on design, I can be your reliable resource for freelance and contract work.


As an industrial designer, my core strength is creating manufacturable CAD models for products that are functional, innovative and aesthetically pleasing. From ideation to prototyping and final production, my expertise in materials, ergonomics, and manufacturing techniques ensures optimal results.  I have developed a process to create and iterate product solutions efficiently and rapidly. By creating conceptual CAD designs, I reduce the development time and allow for the customer to quickly see their idea come to life, evaluate and validate the design through CAD assemblies, mechanical design, photo-realistic renderings, animations and rapid prototyping.

My capabilites extend beyond products into graphic design for logos, packaging, illustrations, user instructions, and more.

If you have a need for my expertise, please contact me and we can work together to develop your ideas!








Craig has been an indispensable part of our team for the better part of a decade. He is very experienced and skilled with industrial design, user experience, graphic design, mechanical design, and design for manufacturability…to the point that whenever I assign tasks to him I never feel the need to “manage” him and the task because he is so highly capable of doing so himself. This has been a huge time and mental-capacity saver for me since I don’t need to think about the task once I assign it to Craig – I know he will get it done and get it done exceptionally well. And this has been the case for many, many years. He is one of the most capable people I know of in this industry, and I count it a great blessing that we have been, and will continue to be, able to work together on so many projects. Furthermore, beyond his technical skill he’s also just a super nice guy who is incredibly pleasant to work with. He is most definitely the guy you want working on your design projects. Aaron Moncur

I consider Craig a key partner for my company. He is extremely talented and can model and remodel a design, sometimes faster than a designer can provide sketches. He has a very deep understanding of Industrial Design and can decipher what a client wants and output several iterations that are usually way beyond what a client was initially thinking. His injection molding design for manufacturing skills are the best I have seen. He looks at parts from a manufacturing perspective so the designs he provides are ready to go to production from the beginning. The best thing about Craig is that he is a complete team player. I love working with him and ideating on solutions to hard problems. He always has a creative way to solve a problem. I would highly recommend Craig Paul Hammerstrom

I have been working with Craig for over 20 years throughout his career. He is highly creative and fast in CAD. When our company is in a crunch to jump-start a new product concept, Craig is on the top of my list! Easy to work with, flexible to meet my demanding schedule and hours! Together we have developed an extensive scope of products, including Medical Catheters, Hearing Aids, Gaming Headsets, Military devices, and Pro Audio Devices. Alex Darbut
