Product design – an innovative and vital design process!
There is scarcely any other area of design that is as full of life and innovation as product design. With a range of inspiring books, Red Dot will introduces you to the world of product development and highlight in particular the role played therein by design. Here in the online shop you can order product design books from the online shop in which you will find all of the important information related to this topic.
Product design is primarily concerned with the development of products which are ultimately intended for manufacture and sale as part of industrial mass production rather than with individual one-off products. As a result, special conditions have to be met in order even to make industrial production possible, but the items produced still have to meet the high stringent requirements for design products in terms of function and appearance.
From idea to product
In order for a product to be successful and meet the expectations people have of a design product, it first goes through a long development phase that begins with the initial idea for the product. A specific task or problem leads to the definition of an objective which then results in a concept. But not all of these concepts are ultimately realised. Every year, the Red Dot Design Concept Yearbook shows you the best current design concepts that are just waiting to go into production. Yet the finished concept by no means marks the end of the design process. This also includes market research, the construction of models and prototypes and their technical construction or research into relevant statutory norms and standards. Naturally, the underlying conditions for industrial production must also be met in order to produce and market design successfully. The term “product design” thus encompasses a long and complex design process that is necessary in order to make original and innovative products accessible to the wider market.
