What is Design?
A design is basically a blueprint or a detailed description of the structure or form of an entity or system, or even for the successful implementation of a process or activity, or the end result of which plan or specification in the shape of a model, product or procedure. Thus, the verb to design generally refers to the process of designing a design, which can be visual, a map, a drawing or any other form. Designing in engineering involves the formulation of a blueprint for a particular structure or item of furniture or equipment that will be used in a certain area or context and its completion with satisfactory performance as per the specifications of the owner or designee. Designing, in other words, is the process or art of formulating ideas, evaluating them based on the available resources and finally transforming those ideas into physical reality.
The term “designing” is usually used in two senses. First, and more commonly, designers are people who create or devise designs or objects; and second, designers are persons who apply concepts of designing into actual reality by making sketches or models and presenting those models for review with others involved in the engineering discipline (e.g., architects, engineers, etc. ), such as designers in industrial, construction, civil, and architectural businesses. Some designers are technically responsible only for creating prototypes. While some industrial designers are also responsible for creating real-life designs for specific purposes, like in the case of aircraft designers, or laboratory designers who create physical models of processes and objects under study.
A good designer must be imaginative and creative to be able to make things unique and memorable. He must be able to think outside the box. Good designers have a clear vision of his target market, and he has a clear sense of style and vision. These two qualities make him original and one of a kind. Many people have their own “designing style,” and often when we refer to a “good designer” we are really talking about someone who possesses an original and innovative thinking.
