Industrial Designer

Traditionally, industrial designers have designed and developed products for use in homes, businesses and industry. However, the role has been expanded to include packaging design, and exhibit deign.

Industrial design incorporates aspects of drawing and design and mechanical engineering. The role of an industrial designer will vary depending on the area that they choose to specialise in. However, they generally work on developing or redesigning a prototype of a product type. The prototype is then tested in terms of form and function to determine whether the client (or the company that the industrial designer works for) should approve the product for mass production. The industrial designer is along for every step of the development process, from conception, until the product is ready for the market.
