What is Required to Apply for a Design?
The first step in the design registration process is to submit the design, which offers distinctive quality and innovation, to the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office for examination. This process, called the design application process, takes place electronically. Application is made with a document explaining the original qualities of the design, visual description for the design, information about the design owner and other documents.

The designer is the person who reveals the design. Our company allows you to apply flawlessly in design registration applications in accordance with legal regulations.
Design Applications Affecting Market Competitiveness
Although they provide the same benefits to the consumer, products that are more aesthetically appealing are preferred. Design has a great impact on purchasing decisions. For this reason, companies constantly work on product design.
While the color, form and aesthetic features of the product gain importance, this creates a different competitive field. Manufacturers who want to take the lead in this competition area apply design application and register their new product designs. Registered designs cannot be used by other companies. The design difference always provides a competitive advantage. Even if the quality, technology, and benefits are the same, a product can be found more attractive by the consumers with the difference in design. Design applications offer innovations that improve market competitiveness.
What To Look For When Examining The Design Application?
While design applications are examined by the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office, formal examination and content examination are performed. Examining the form examines the documents and presentation qualities in the presentation. Content review examines design innovation, uniqueness, and other attributes.
Design applications that do not conform to the design definition, are not new, contain inappropriate use, or are against public morality are rejected.
