Words from Design Lines Clients

“Any company searching for a talented and extremely professional product designer for soft goods need not look any further. Brent Harris took our rough concept design for a Hydration Pack, made suggestions for improvements, and created several prototypes for us to market to potential customers. Brent is very easy to work with and was always available for follow-up questions and recommendations. We hope to be using Brent’s services again in the near future.”

– Alfonzo Walker, AquaKara

“Brent has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only is he an expert in the field of design and prototyping, he always makes time and goes above and beyond for his clients. We’ve worked with many partners before and Brent is without a doubt the best!”


“I had an idea and a few drawings. Brent was an integral part in helping me turn what I had on paper into a fully functioning, marketable backpack. He’s the kind of builder that not only welcomed me to be a part of the creative process, but had insightful advice on how to improve my designs. Brent is a true pro. Five stars for Design Lines, LLC.”

– JJ Davis, Koraloc Board Bags

“I worked with Brent to produce a prototype of an idea based on rudimentary sketches and my own ideas. With careful and patient professionalism, he executed my concept brilliantly, creating a model of my product I can take to market. I recommend Mr. Harris as a skilled craftsman and practical designer of outdoor gear. The high quality and collaborative style of his work combined with his wealth of experience make him and Design Lines, LLC valuable partners to anyone working in the industry.”

– Robert Brunwin

“Our journey with Design Lines began when we came to them after our bag was made poorly by another company. After speaking with Brent over the phone we knew the road to a more efficient and higher end carrier was near. Brent asked relevant questions regarding the design and also went over the aesthetics and the technical uses. After just one week we had our multi-functional carrier. We are very pleased with our carrier and also the service Design Lines provided. We highly recommend Design Lines to all entrepreneurs looking to build a great product for your customers!”

– Shawn Shelby, DindleBee, LLC Rock Hill, SC

“The samples look absolutely great. We have spent the last few days reviewing them in preparation for our sourcing manager to take them to China tomorrow. We are very excited about the possibilities they offer for our business. Thank you again for completing this project with such great results. I hope we have the opportunity to work together on future projects.”

– Gary Land, Comfort Product

“Working with Brent on two separate projects has provided insight into his keen ability to communicate with clients, hammer out creative ideations collectively, and deliver a top-notch end result. His aesthetic instincts are strong, while making sure to keep function prioritized as well. I can’t say enough about working with him. He is professional and skilled in his craft in every way.”

– Kent Alphin, Allfin Sports

“The samples were incredibly valuable when speaking with the suppliers, and they went above their job to help communicate the design. We will be looking to you to provide us with more products in the very near future, along the same lines. Thanks again, Brent!”

– Dominic Peralta, Stellar Design

“I wanted to let you know that the prototype is working out very well – I really love it and it really works. I’ve also had my husband using it and his feedback is thumbs up too! Thank you.”

– Christine Iizumi Cheung, Beanko

“I just want to take a moment and let you know I sincerely appreciate all of your hard work. It was a challenging project, and I am truly glad it was in your hands. Thank you very much for keeping at it all along. I think someone with less professionalism and character never would have made it this far. Thank you!”

– David Abramowitz, President & Founder, Kulkea, LLC

“Several pieces needed to come together in order to launch Mudroom Backpacks and Brent played a significant role in the launch of the backpack design, and the company. Brent completed the project beyond my expectations. We worked together on the conception, design, development and production stages of the project. At each stage, we discussed the scope and he provided a quote and worked towards completion within the agreed upon timeline. I highly recommend Brent Harris and his design, prototyping and manufacturing expertise in relation to backpacks and bags.”

– David Deioma, Mudroom Backpacks

“Hi Brent, I bought a pack from you in 1984, a gray Brentley Software, and it’s been in near daily use since then. I’d like to commend you on your choice of materials and construction techniques, the pack has been awesome. Until last week – for no particular reason, the top outside pouch zipper finally failed. It just wore out from probably tens of thousands of cycles. I was a bit sad, the pack has been like an old friend for almost 30 years, but then I toasted you for building a pack that gave lots of years of service. Your product line and your very professional business sense is impressive. Thanks again for building a great pack. I wish you were still making them!”
