Design Consultants for the Rail Industry
Design and Service Innovation
Yellow Window is a multidisciplinary design agency with a strong expertise in rail, supporting mobility actors to optimise, differentiate and innovate their products and services.
Specialised in developing products and services into operational solutions, Yellow Window serves a diverse client-base of transport authorities and operators, as well as OEM’s of rolling stock, interior equipment and stations. Applying our talents in service of mobility, we design user-centred solutions in aviation, rail and bus, down to shuttles and personal mobility.
Full Service Support – Design from Specifications up to Refurbishments
Specialised in developing rail products and services, we master the whole process from procurement to realisation. Leveraging on a broad range of design disciplines (transport design as well as product-, spatial-, information-, digital design, VR), Yellow Window offers a full-service approach from specifications over concept development up to industrial design, refurbishments, services and communication.
Creating Operational Solutions, with Value for Users and Stakeholders at Large
Our team is multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural; combined skills realising performant, relevant, user-centred solutions in complex stakeholder landscapes. Keeping a strong focus on design quality, our landmark products are manufactured cost-effectively and geared for commercial success. Evidence for our quality and skill to balance ambition with realism, is the high number of successful bids we are involved in, the faithful implementation of our design in the final product.
Better Results Out of Procurement
Procurement can produce better projects, if operators leverage the potential of suppliers and fulfil the expectations of everyday travellers and stakeholders at large. Working with both operators / authorities and the supply industry over decades, trained Yellow Window to facilitate procurement processes and to develop multiple tools in support:
- design-first process: advanced bid processes featuring conceptually designed specifications – to test with stakeholders and enhance bid specs
- design specifications precise, user-centred requirements
- design guides to tangibly communicate required objectives and specifications
- operator manuals, to internally align design or procurement strategies, refurbishment protocols or 2D/3D identity development
- immersive virtualisation VR/XR to precede or replace prototyping and accelerate the development process
