About the service

A design patent exclusively safeguards the visual appearance of a product and does not encompass its structural or functional attributes. It relies on concise written descriptions and primarily covers the unique ornamental elements of an object. It is imperative to present multiple perspectives of the invention, including front, side, top, bottom, and a three-dimensional view. Design patent drawings serve as graphical representations of the aesthetic design of a manufactured item, specifically tailored for use in design patent applications. They necessitate comprehensive depictions of contours, shapes, material textures, properties, and proportions. These drawings must unambiguously display every visible feature during the object's use, leaving no room for interpretation.


Creating design patent drawings requires a specific methodology to ensure they meet the necessary standards for inclusion in a design patent application. Here's a step-by-step methodology for preparing design patent drawings

Step 1

Understand the Design

We begin by thoroughly understanding the design to be patented. Familiarize our self with its unique ornamental features, contours, shapes, and any distinctive elements that set it apart from existing designs.

Step 2

Select the Views

We determine the different views or perspectives needed to fully illustrate the design. Common views include front, rear, top, bottom, side, and a perspective view. The choice of views should highlight the most distinctive aspects of the design.

Step 3

Focus on Key Features

We pay special attention to the design's essential features, contours, and any surface ornamentation. Ensure that these features are accurately and prominently represented in the drawings.

Step 4

Consistency Across Views

We maintain consistency in the visual representation of the design across all selected views. The design should look the same from all angles.

Step 5

No Functional Elements

The design patent drawings should focus solely on the ornamental aspects of the design. Therefore, we exclude any functional or structural elements, as these are not relevant to design patents.

Step 6

Shading and Texture

We use shading to indicate surface characteristics such as texture, transparency, or solidity. Shading should be applied consistently and clearly to convey these attributes.

Step 7

Draft in Appropriate Format

We ensure that the drawings adhere to the specific format and requirements of the patent office where you plan to file the design patent application. Different patent offices may have different standards.

Step 8

Review and Refine

We conduct a thorough review of the drawings to eliminate any inconsistencies, inaccuracies, or ambiguities. Make necessary revisions and refinements to achieve a high level of quality.

  • Submit with the Design Patent Application Includes the formal design patent drawings with your patent application when filing. Ensuring that they are submitted in the required format, often as separate sheets or as part of the design specification.

  • Maintain Copies Keep copies of the original drawings for your records and future reference. These copies may be needed during the patent prosecution process or in case of disputes.

  • Stay Informed Stay updated on changes in design patent office rules and drawing requirements to ensure that your drawings continue to meet the latest standards.

By following this methodology, you can create design patent drawings that effectively illustrate the unique ornamental features of your design and meet the requirements of the design patent application process.
