If you're considering how to patent a design, we can help navigate the integral steps involved in the process. A design consists of the visual ornamental characteristics embodied in, or applied to, an article of manufacture. The subject matter of a design patent application may relate to the shape of an article, to the surface ornamentation applied to an article, or to both the shape and ornamentation. File this type of patent application to protect the unique appearance, not function, of items such as clothing, containers, furniture.
