Industrial Designs

The creative act of determining and defining an industrial, mass-market product's form and features influenced by factors as varied as materials, production processes, business strategy and prevailing social, commercial or aesthetic attitudes. Industrial design is a process of design applied to products that are to be manufactured through techniques of mass production.

Architectural Designs

The design activity of the architect, from the macro-level (urban design, landscape architecture) to the micro-level (construction details and furniture). Architecture is both the process and the product of planning, designing, and constructing buildings or any other structures. Architectural works, in the material form of buildings, are often perceived as cultural symbols and as works of art.

Product Designs

Product design is to create a new product to be sold by a business to its customers. The product designer's role is to combine art, science, and technology to create new products that people can use. Product design overlaps with but also highly different from industrial design as it further relates to strategic and tactical activities, from idea generation to commercialization.

Communication Designs

Communication design is a mixed discipline between design and information-development which is concerned with how media intervention such as printed, crafted, electronic media or presentations communicate with people. A communication design approach is not only concerned with developing the message aside from the aesthetics in media, but also with creating new media channels to ensure the message reaches the target audience.

Service Designs
