Product Design Job Description

A product designer is required to strategically design the entire lifecycle of any given product and keep it on task. He/she starts with the conception of the idea and sees it all the way through to the point where the product is released for consumer purchase. Product designers must have strong skills when it comes to designing things in an iterative fashion, and they must have a comprehensive knowledge of not only the industry they are working in, but the users, as well.

A product designer needs to have a sharp eye for such things as color and shape and be very creative, as well. He/she must be able to understand the different methods of production, as well as the materials or mediums used, and this also means they must be knowledgeable in the way products are chosen by customers.

Of course, product designers must have strong communication skills and be able to work well within a team. There are a number of skills that they must possess, including visual design, UX/UI design and UX research. Product designers are highly sought after throughout the country. The median salary in 2017 for a product designer was about $130,000 per year. If this is an interest to you, you will most likely need a bachelors degree or the equivalent work experience, if not a masters degree in a particular field.
