Welcome to Fore-thought Designs.

We invite selected manufacturers like you to consider our inventions for licensed production. We do not represent outside inventors. Nor do we sell design services in the traditional sense. Instead, we initiate research, industrial design development, and patent protection within markets that offer exceptional opportunities for innovation. This offers you the opportunity to invest in design solutions instead of the design process. We present those solutions directly to only the companies that are likely to have an interest in them. Since the return on our R&D and patent investments depends on your sales of those products; we are vitally committed to your success. -Steven Tidcomb, Industrial Designer, Inventor, and founder of Forethought Designs.

Patent granted for Super Sweep™ shovels.

This combination snow shovel and vehicle snow broom does both jobs with less time and effort than all other tools. Instead of scraping the ground, the bristle-edged blade sweeps over course or broken pavement like a push broom. Its extra wide vehicle broom clears snow from cars and trucks extra fast.
