Story about the design data

From the car we drive, to the clothes we wear and the cosmetics we use, everything is designed and all these designs are protected. So there is a huge amount of design data in the world. Any company with products whose design needs to be protected, and any designer who wants to test his or her design against what already exists, needs design data to make the right decisions.

Lighthouse IP offers its clients unique AI design data searching possibilities. Design data is a difficult category of IP information to search. Until recently, only meta information was available and only keywords could be searched within classifications. Lighthouse IP applies data standardization and preparation for improved AI usage, enabling end users to find relevant designs faster.
