Today, the design of a product plays a considerable role in the buying decision. It provides impetus and sparks emotions. Since functional differences between products have become fewer and life cycles shorter, the visual appearance of a product is often the only perceivable distinctive feature to the customers. With attractive colours, patterns and shapes of products, companies can appeal to the emotions of customers and create customer loyalty.
