Design dictionary

[ Product Design ]

Product, past participle of the word produce, from the Latin producere (to lead forward) and design derived from the Latin designare (to mark with a sign, to draw, to indicate).


Product design entails imagining, creating, conceiving or improving products intended to be distributed on the market. Product design is a term that originated in the design industry and initially referred to the design of physical objects. Much more than the drawing of a shape or a volume, product design integrates different parameters such as the manufacturing process, the production costs, the materials, their properties, as well as the entire life cycle of the product, from its launch to its death.

Today, the product design approach no longer applies to solely physical objects but also to interfaces such as applications or service devices with a digital dimension (digital products).
