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.

If you want to find out more about the fundamentals of product design, you can purchase interesting books on this topic in our online shop. From Material and Design to Make up  Designing Surfaces, you will find many exciting and in-depth publications that will explain the fundamentals of successful product design in an easy-to-understand manner.

Always up to date

Innovative product design plays a major role for many professions – from design professionals to entrepreneurs, heads of purchasing, managers and advertising professionals. But in order to be able to assess product design in terms of its quality, it is essential to always keep up to date. The fascinating books from the Red Dot online shop are perfectly suited to keeping you up to speed. You will find impressive and current examples of well-executed product design in the different volumes of the Red Dot Design Yearbook series. The individual volumes Doing, Living and Working will give you an insight into designs from the areas of active living, home and lifestyle and the world of work. If you wish, you can also buy the three volumes as a set in the Red Dot online shop.

Just take a relaxed look around the product design section. If you find a book that interests you, you can order it online, easily and securely, here in the Red Dot Design Shop. Enjoy browsing.
