Good design practice effectively applied, results in innovative, meaningful, ergonomic and appropriate products. In addition, it can result in a highly marketable product with a lasting brand value. This principle has been demonstrated many times by design conscious firms. When logic of good design is practiced and implemented, products capture and sustain consumer demand in a competitive market place. With the change in economic scenario and opening up of Indian economy, competition is from all over the world. Introducing new and innovative products is essential. The products have to be designed to suit the user’s needs.
