Designing , be it aproduct of necessity , technology , beauty or any other accessories is going through a phase of change and innvation due to increased consumer demand of preferred utility and comfort. Deswigning can be manily divided into following fields:-

Whichever field of design one chooses to specialize in , there are specific area related work that are done.

Designers work towards making a visual impact with their product, presenting a message to a particular audience- making the ideas clear and memorable. There is no need to be genius at art, but you must be able to sketch clearly and precisely to show adesign.
