industrial design


Industrial designers are responsible for function and aesthetics in the manufactured products and packaging people use every day. Toothbrushes, toasters, cars, computer terminals, furniture, food and telephones are examples of items industrial designers make usable and desirable for human beings. Colors, textures, form and sounds are some of the elements they consider, and in addition, ergonomics of safety and efficiency as well as mechanical or electrical components of a product must work properly, efficiently and safely.
