A design is a construction or activity specification or plan, or the result of that plan in the form of a prototype, finished product, or process. "To design" as a verb expresses the process of developing such a design. In some cases, the direct construction of an object without an explicit prior plan is also considered to be a design activity. The same word is also used for the broad discipline of design creation, which spans engineering and applied art. Major examples of design include architectural blueprints, engineering drawings, business processes, circuit diagrams, and sewing patterns.
