What is industrial design?
Industrial or product design is a professional creative process, which integrates a number of scientific, technical and artistic fields.
Industrial design is a process, which applies to products that are to be designed for mass production. The designer is responsible for the creation and definition of shape, material, and characteristics of the product. This form is then reproduced using automated processes, which is the main difference from a craft-based design where the form is defined by the specific moment.
An industrial designer designs and applies solutions to the following aspects of a product: shape, aesthetics, function, usability, ergonomics, marketing, sales and sustainability.
