Design permeates every aspect of our world and defies a single, definitive definition. It extends far beyond aesthetics, akin to an essential element like the air we breathe. According to the UK Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), design is described as a structured creative process. While it’s commonly associated with the visual aspect of manufactured products, it encompasses a much broader spectrum. Design encompasses functionality, aesthetics, manufacturability, sustainability, reliability, and even the optimization of business processes.
