I majored in Industrial Design. During the course, however, I changed to visual design/graphic design. Even though I changed I always admired good industrial designs, especially because of all the considerations taken during the process. It's more than visual; there are materials, ways of production, logistics.

In this post I've selected some of the coolest industrial designs from Behance. I was looking for some inspiration in this field and decided to browse through Behance, and before I knew it I had hundreds of tabs opened.

Some designs I selected because of the visual aesthetics like the Fan Clock, but the majority due to the eco-friendly aspects. I hope you like it and if you have any links to great product designs let us know, let's enrich this article with your comments :)
