“I always know that when I work with Jude, I can count on top quality craftsmanship in a timely manner. When challenged, Jude is not afraid to push the parameters of traditional model making. He provides solutions that communicate exactly what we are after.”

About Us

Jude Henson-Oliver started TriCreation in 2002. He brings his clients eight years of focused design education and 12 years working in the fields of industrial design and prototype engineering.

Jude received his BA in Industrial Design from Sheffield Hallam University in England and his MA in Industrial Design from the University of Central England. Before founding TriCreation, Jude worked for leading design and prototype companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and maintains relationships with clients such as IDEO, Astro, Frog, Philips, Apple, HP, Nectar, Medtronic, Samsung, and Northrup Gruman.

TriCreation has helped startup companies, such as Pen Again, bring their product to market, as well as providing ongoing support to more established companies. We offer a broad range of expertise developing consumer electronics, automotive, furniture and medical products.


Communication is key to the design process. We are accessible and available to talk through your design needs, review all angles of the project and keep you abreast of changes, progress, and possiblities from start to finish.

At TriCreation the mastery of 3D form creation is married with our broad product design experience. This combination streamlines the ideation process and allows us to forsee potential snags or hiccups before parts are cut. We've been successfully bridging the gap between designers and engineers for over eight years.

Whether you need a one-off foam study, or a company that can take you from napkin sketch to manufacturable database, we can cover the spectrum.

You will receive top notch models that will wow your clients, arrive on time, intact and to budget. That's our bottom line.
