The question seems very simple, but there is no obvious answer to it. And that's normal - after all, each of us imagines the world of design in his own way. In this article, we will try to take a look at the world of design from an unusual angle. For example, have you ever thought about the fact that trolley buses, street lamps and even subways have a design? So, one day, someone designed them and drew them.


I mean, design is more than just posters, billboards and flyers in the street. There are many interesting design directions. Here are some of them:


Graphic design - the creation of 2D plan graphic objects. This includes not only the creation of graphic elements, but also the layout of logos and flat design elements.


Tool: Adobe Illustrator.


Interior design - graphical display of interior objects in 3D. Sofas, armchairs, chairs and tables are the interior objects we use every day. Making all these elements beautiful, harmonious and easy to use is not an easy task. But if you are a skilled interior designer, you can do it.


Tools: Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk 3ds Maya, Autodesk AutoCAD.


Urban Design - creation and display of graphic objects of the urban environment in 3D and 2D, also known as Urbodesign. City posters, benches, urns and even the shape and colour of sidewalks are all part of the urban designer's work.


Tools: Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk 3ds Maya, Autodesk AutoCAD, Adobe Photoshop.


Industrial design - creation and display of graphic objects of industrial environment in 3D and 2D


Tools: Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk 3ds Maya, Autodesk AutoCAD, Adobe Photoshop.


Interface Design - graphical display of the interfaces of all the different types of devices, also known as UX and UI design. In fact, we all come into daily contact with the work of the designers in this field. The interfaces of all smartphones, tablets and office devices were once carefully designed and tested by design experts.


Tools: Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop.


Fonts - font design is a very narrow and voluminous topic. But it is not enough to design a simple font for each inscription. It is also necessary to design all alphabetic and graphic symbols, preferably Russian, Ukrainian and English alphabet, and to take into account changes in the pin fonts.


Tool: Adobe Illustrator.


Subject design - is the design of objects, and often their packaging. In today's world, we are surrounded by countless products that are in an increasingly competitive market. To withstand the increasing competition, a product must not only be of high quality, but also well packaged. Product packaging is a very interesting and specialized part of design.


Tools: Autodesk 3ds Max, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop.


Game character design - is a graphical representation of video game characters in 2D and 3D. This design direction is one of the most complex and interesting at the same time. Among the benefits - high salaries and almost unlimited opportunities to put your skills into practice.


Tools: Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk 3ds Maya, Autodesk AutoCAD, Adobe Photoshop.


This is certainly not the complete list of all design directions. But you are by now fully assured that the world of design is vast and accessible to all. You just have to approach it with a simple question: " What do I like? 


The answer to this question can only be found by trying different domains of the profession. Professional lecturers of the Graphics and Design section of IT STEP Academy Geneva will help you to do so.
