We’re excited to announce that we’ve officially launched Australian Design Search.

Australian Design Search is the replacement search tool for Australian Designs Data Searching (ADDS) and has been designed to be simple and easy to use whether you’re a regular or it’s your first time searching.

Australian Design Search innovatively combines Compumark’s world-leading image search, advanced machine learning and the latest capabilities in design searching.

Users are now able to flexibly search the large Australian designs database with features such as:

  • the ability to search using images, numbers or keywords
  • customisable reporting and exporting allowing users to easily track and share their results.

Australian Design Search allows you to more easily find and interact with designs filed in Australia. Our aim is to generate a better understanding of the designs system, producing better quality applications that are more likely to succeed. 

Try Australian Design Search now.

Designs protect the way a product looks, for example its shape, pattern or packaging.

Protected designs are all around Australia, from KeepCups for your morning coffee, to Breville sandwich presses on your lunch break. Even R. M. Williams boots are protected.

You can find out more about designs by visiting the ‘Designs’ section of our website.
