Product designer: what to know to be one in the UAE market


Product designer: what to know to be one in the UAE market

SHARE Undergraduate Product Design Course Istituto Marangoni Dubai

A product designer makes a practical and functional product as artistic and attractive to a consumer as possible. It takes creativity, consumer-savvy, and know-how to take a product from ideation all the way to production. To break things down further, product development usually starts with that idea.

While a product designer does indeed create (or design) products, they are also a part of a larger design team. These product designers are typically employed by the manufacturers of most every product you can imagine. A product designer must also be a visual who designs websites, furniture, technology, cars and anything else you can buy.

As a product designerproduct designer, you will wear many hats, including product manager, designer, researcher, marketer, salesperson and of course, designer. While design is in the title of the role, it won’t be your only responsibility. There is so much more that goes into the “design” of a product to make it successful. A product designer may consider themselves a designer first, but they will still need to incorporate these other skills into their role. To mention just a few of them: you will need to develop your ability to communicate, learn to think strategically, deal with project management and negotiation, and many more.

A new era of designers, architects and artists in the UAE is redefining what it means to shape the future of our environments and cities, from the Middle East to the rest of the world, and it is a very exciting time to be a part of this change.
