A new breed of modern designers is on the way. These non-traditional industrial designers work across disciplines, understand human beings, as well as business and technology thus bridging the gap between customer needs and technological advancement of tomorrow. This book uncovers prospective designer techniques and methods of a new age of industrial design, whose practitioners strive to construct simple and yet complex products of the future. The novel frontiers of a new era of industrial design are exposed, in what concerns the design process, in illustrating the use of new technologies in design and in terms of the advancement of culturally inspired design. The diverse perspectives taken by the authors of this book ensure stimulating reading and will assist readers in leaping forward in their own practice of industrial design, and in preparing new research that is relevant and aligned with the current challenges of this fascinating field.

This book is about those industrial designers and how they founded, developed, educated and organized today's profession of more than 50,000 practitioners.
Author: Carroll Gantz
As the Great Depression started in 1929, several dozen creative individuals from a variety of artistic fields, including theatre, advertising, graphics, fashion and furniture design, pioneered a new profession. Responding to unprecedented public and industry demand for new styles, these artists entered the industrial world during what was called the "Machine Age," to introduce "modern design" to the external appearance and form of mass-produced, functional, mechanical consumer products formerly not considered art. The popular designs by these "machine designers" increased sales and profits dramatically for manufacturers, which helped the economy to recover; established a new profession, industrial design; and within a decade, changed American products from mechanical monstrosities into sleek, modern forms expressive of the future. This book is about those industrial designers and how they founded, developed, educated and organized today's profession of more than 50,000 practitioners.

This book is a revised and updated edition of a major work first published in 2001 under the auspices of the Intellectual Property Committee of the International Bar Association. As a comparative cross-jurisdictional analysis of the practice, theory, scope, and types of design protection, it will continue to be of immeasurable value to lawyers and others involved in industrial design. Industrial designs are particularly interesting because the laws in many countries attempt in different ways to find a balance between protection for the artistic and freedom to use the purely functional, and between the proprietary rights of the creator and the public domain rights of the competitor. The second edition is comprised of more than twenty country reports, each written by one or more prominent intellectual property lawyer(s) in the country covered. To facilitate cross-jurisdictional comparison, each report is structured according to the following sequence of topics: • new developments in each jurisdiction; • conventions and legislation; • definition of what constitutes a protectable design; • originality /novelty; • duration of protection; • infringement; • defences to infringement; • procedures for filing application for registration; and • expunging, cancelling, or varying registration. Prominent new developments covered in the second edition include the continuing impact of the European Community Design Directive, the adoption of the Hague Convention with corresponding major changes to US and Canadian design law and practice, the new German Design Law, and China's new Guidelines for examination. Each jurisdiction's currently applicable legislation, regulation, and case law is summarized and analysed.
Throughout Industrial Design, inquiry-based activities, essential questions, links to online primary sources, and an extensive engineering glossary all serve to highlight the importance and beauty of engineering design and the role it plays ...

Industrial Design is a broad field and its application is found in every field where production of new products takes place.
Publisher: Can Akdeniz
Industrial Design is a broad field and its application is found in every field where production of new products takes place. Industrial Design is said to be teamwork and a collaborative work of people from technical field, sales team and brand managers along with designers who work together for the successful making of product as well as obtaining its efficient market value. The entire process of design takes approximately 4 months of time starting from the description of the product to the concept designing till the marketing of the product. Before falling in the profession, one must be aware about the possible scope of the profession, its pros and cons as well its future reach and also must know about how demanding the profession can be for proper completion of the duties. Designing of product is in itself a task but proper measures must be taken to prevent encryption. It not only preserves the originality of the product but also renders profit in terms of the benefit it provides.

If you have designs for wonderful machines in mind, but aren’t sure how to turn your ideas into real, engineered products that can be manufactured, marketed, and used, this book is for you. Engineering professor and veteran maker Tom Ask helps you integrate mechanical engineering concepts into your creative design process by presenting them in a rigorous but largely nonmathematical format. Through mind stories and images, this book provides you with a firm grounding in material mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, and heat transfer. Students, product and mechanical designers, and inventive makers will also explore nontechnical topics such as aesthetics, ethnography, and branding that influence product appeal and user preference. Learn the importance of designing functional products that also appeal to users in subtle ways Explore the role of aesthetics, ethnography, brand management, and material culture in product design Dive into traditional mechanical engineering disciplines related to the behavior of solids, liquids, and gases Understand the human factors of design, such as ergonomics, kinesiology, anthropometry, and biomimicry Get an overview of available mechanical systems and components for creating your product

Publisher: "O'Reilly Media, Inc."
With the coming flood of connected products, many UX and interaction designers are looking into hardware design, a discipline largely unfamiliar to them. If you’re among those who want to blend digital and physical design concepts successfully, this practical book helps you explore seven long-standing principles of industrial design. Two present and former design directors at IDEO, the international design and innovation firm, use real-world examples to describe industrial designs that are sensorial, simple, enduring, playful, thoughtful, sustainable, and beautiful. You’ll learn how to approach, frame, and evaluate your designs as they extend beyond the screen and into the physical world. Sensorial: create experiences that fully engage our human senses Simple: design simple products that provide overall clarity in relation to their purpose Enduring: build products that wear well and live on as classics Playful: use playful design to go beyond functionality and create emotional connections Thoughtful: observe people’s struggles and anticipate their needs Sustainable: design products that reduce environmental impact Beautiful: elevate the experience of everyday products through beauty
