Characteristics of a Good Industrial Designer
Do you ever ask yourself: what are the attributes of an excellent industrial designer? This question can help in choosing the right designer to create your products.
Below are four attributes to look out for in a designer:
1. Innovation: the best industrial designers are the ones that come up with state-of-the-art designs. Only designers will great computer skills can produce these drawings.
When an idea is tabled before an industrial designer, he or she thinks about the actualization of the concept. Only great thinkers can come up with innovative designs that will work.
2. Great Technical Abilities: industrial designers innovate, draw, build and create. This requires excellent technical knowledge of the system of the product they are trying to develop. For example, an automobile design needs you to understand how the engine of a car works.
3. Excellent Computer Skill: A considerable part of the industrial design is focused on constructing components of the consumer products with CAD engineering software. These drawings are necessary to help quote price for manufacturing companies and drawing realistic rendering to include in your business plans or present at investors’ meetings.
4. Great Building Skills: Every designer is required to build a prototype to test the realism of the proposed concept. An industrial designer who cannot build good prototypes is going to design unsafe products. And this could land you in hot waters if there are lawsuits for accidents because of the product’s deficiencies.
