Our Design Principles

Prometheus Design Werx's inherent passion for creating our exceptional products to be used in their intended contexts and environments means that we intrinsically stay authentic and true to our narrative, consumer, and community. Every product we design and craft are ones we use ourselves everyday in the field or on the street.

Simplicity and Sophistication

We admire DaVinci’s declaration regarding "simplicity and sophistication" and challenge ourselves to that design end. We recognize that it can often be a complex process to arrive there. Sometimes less is more, but everything present must function as it is intended.

"Better still, [good design] can make the product clearly express its function by making use of the user’s intuition. At best, it is self-explanatory."

- Dieter Rams

Form Follows
Function

Our designs' aesthetic outcomes are a consequence of the objects' functions. We don't do racing stripes, garish flourishments, or superfluous details in our designs. Every part, component, and detail that goes into a design serves a purpose, and its whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Experience
Insight
Input

We learn from the past, look to the future, and build for today. Our design process is one which involves the empirical, years of field experience, the fulfillment of a need, and discussions with real world users who find themselves in challenging (and sometimes dangerous) environments and conditions all over the world.

Danger Ranger Bear

Adventure
Is Out There

Danger Ranger Bear is our resident, virtual campsite host, camp counsellor, and wilderness guide. He is here to share the how to’s, what’s, why’s, do’s, and don’ts for your next outdoor adventure. Danger Ranger Bear encourages you to be a friend to the wilderness when you get the call, and to the woodland creatures big or small. He wants you to be prepared, be ready, face the challenges, plan for risks, thrill in the journey, and to not die dumb. No adventure big or small was ever great, without a bit of danger.

Look for the DRB logo on exclusive products in the PDW website to purchase, use or wear and show off that you’re no longer an ignorant, doughy tenderfoot. Take the moose by the horns (actually a really terrible idea, DRB does not suggest that you do this but it was a play on another ol’ idiom), turn that hipster beard into mountainman scruff, lace up those hiking boots, hit the trail, walk as tall as Paul Bunyan, tune in with nature like John Muir, and be rough and ready as Jeremiah Johnson. #dangerrangerbear
