About the service

Industrial Designs provide protection for the ornamental or aesthetic aspects of an article or product. Unlike other forms of Intellectual Property, Industrial Designs rely primarily on visual elements, with minimal verbal specifications. This unique aspect places a significant responsibility on the drafter to effectively convey the entire design through drawings alone. Consequently, design patents encompass not only structural views but also different perspectives such as front view, side view, top view, and even perspective views. In certain special cases, design applications may include three-dimensional views, incorporating visible lines (solid lines) and invisible lines (dotted lines). The art of drafting design patents demands a specialized skill set, acquired through experience in handling various design cases.

Effectual Services specializes in preparing design applications that meet the stringent requirements of the Indian Patent Office. Our seasoned team possesses extensive experience in crafting design applications across diverse domains, including Biotech, Pharmaceuticals, IT, Computers, Telecom, Electronics, Mechanical, Automotive, and Consumer Durables.
