The program of Industrial Design Conference "Ideas. Design. Items" has been formed

Apr 25, 2019

Industrial design is an area which is becoming more and more popular within the framework of development of our country. According to the government’s resolution, the country is embaring on the manufacturing of its own consumer goods, which makes industrial designers in demand in the labor market, and the profession of industrial designer become more interesting to applicants.


To understand the role of industrial design in creating a product, first of all you need to answer the question: why do manufacturers need design and what tasks can it solve? There are many scientific and "mundane" definitions of the purpose of industrial design, but they all agree on one fact. On one hand  design serves to define the formal qualities of industrial products, such as appearance, structural and functional features, on the other hand -  industrial design is a necessary tool to invent products that can use new technologies for a comfortable life.
