In the product creation process, a Product Designer must understand not only the manufacturer's needs, but also seek to emotionally connect with its users.
With the Product Design Degree at ESDi, you will learn to handle different types of materials, while you delve into the functional, aesthetic, spatial and ergonomic characteristics of the products. In our workshops and classrooms you will make models, prototypes and create 3D designs.
Also, given the growing concern for eco-design in consumption and manufacturing, the life cycle of objects is one of the key points in Product Design. For this reason we place a special emphasis on sustainability and recycling .
