“UNBELIEVABLE” were my first thoughts after my first encounter with Guy Mathiot of Design IQ.
A few years ago I had the rare opportunity to witness the tactical genius of Guy Mathiot as he consulted on my start up luggage company FanTrav, LLC. Previously, we worked with two other luggage design consultants who didn’t quite get what we needed. In just a few hours Guy masterfully took our basic luggage line and expanded it to a viable market place product offering –far beyond even what we could ever see or think. “Unbelievable”!
Guy’s scientific-like approach to design, Keen attention to detail, uncanny ability to see gaps in the market, an understanding of the consumer, all while being mindful of our financial objectives is what clearly sets him far apart from others in the industry.
Beyond this design skill mastery and business experience is the man himself who I found easy to communicate with, likeable, and most important a man of integrity.
If starting a luggage company from scratch, there is no other “Guy” for the job. (I couldn’t resist!!)
