Registered Designs protect the appearance of your product – this could be the shape or configuration of your product, or surface decoration and patterns. Registering your design gives you added protection from anyone using or copying your work, over a longer period of time.

If design is a core part of your business, you can register multiple designs at once, for a reduced cost.
