What does it take to design and innovate a product? What can brands do to successfully launch and market their products?

Innovation is about coming up with solutions to customers' problems. The first step is to identify a need in the market that requires a solution. The next step is to do research about the market gap, determine if there's an opportunity to create a unique product, and get validation for your idea.
