Industrial design • January 2005 - January 2010
1600 hours evening school Mastering Industrial design. Industrial design is a process of design applied to products that are to be manufactured by mass production and cost-saving processes. It is the creative act of determining and defining a product's form and features, which takes place in advance of the making of a product. It can be influenced by factors as varied as materials, production processes, business strategy, and prevailing social, commercial, or aesthetic attitudes. Industrial design, as applied art, most often focuses on a combination of aesthetics and user-focused considerations, but also often provides solutions for problems of form, function, physical ergonomics, marketing, brand development, sustainability, and sales. The perfect next step after many years of hands-on experience.
