DESIGN TRADEMARKING IN
SWITZERLAND AND ABROAD

Protect what makes you unique, easily and effectively

A design trademark protects your creative new designs from imitation. Flat designs (patterns, product labels) and object shapes can be trademarked. We will be delighted to advise you on whether your design can be trademarked.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRADEMARK YOUR DESIGN?

Appealing design plays an important role in your clients’ decision to buy your product, meaning that clients are willing to pay more for an attractive design. Your products’ design is therefore an important factor in your company’s success, which needs to be protected from imitation and plagiarism. Registering your design as a trademark also allows you to sell your trademarked design or to grant usage rights to third parties, e.g., through licensing, in order to generate more revenue.

Process: what is required to trademark a design?

It’s simple: to advise you and trademark your design for you, we just need:

 

  • Images of the design which you plan to trademark.
  • Product description (if not clearly visible from the images)
  • The designer’s name and place of residence
  • The trademark applicant’s name and address (company/individual(s)/association)
