Consumer goods design

Consumer goods are products, which are known from daily use. Examples are office, kitchen, sanitary and, of course, electronic products. In this field, the function of the products is very often comparable. The design is, therefore, given a very special status. It is often the only distinguishing feature besides brand and price.

The development of design must deal intensively with the respective target groups which generates design concepts and distinctive features that makes products appealing and convincing. The classic design aspects such as form, color, materiality, haptics and ergonomics as well as naming and branding are of particular importance in the consumer goods sector.

 

However, today’s designs also need to consider properties, such as noises, signals and the weight of a product. All these characteristics taken together form the user experience, the overall perception and evaluation of a product with all the senses.

 

In addition, defortec, is also constantly trying to develop new ideas for the utility, which offer appreciably added value in the use of the product. The combination of perfect design and additional usability creates the perfect product from our point of view.

"Graphical user interface (GUI)"

In computing, a graphical user interface (GUI) is a type of interface that allows users to interact with electronic devices through graphical icons and visual indicators such as secondary notation, as opposed to text-based interfaces, typed command labels or text navigation. GUIs were introduced in reaction to the perceived steep learning curve of command-line interfaces which require commands to be typed on the keyboard.

The actions in a GUI are usually performed through direct manipulation of the graphical elements. As well as computers, GUIs can be found in hand-held devices such as MP3 players, portable media players, gaming devices and smaller household, office and industry equipment.
