There is no consensus among the designers and design educators on the number of design elements. For well over 100 years of formal design education, design students are trained to use varying number of elements in their pursuit of designing products. In the design literature, there are different sets of design elements mentioned for the purpose of designing products. This inconsistency has often led to confusion among design students and designers about what really are the elements. This paper is an attempt to bring some clarity to this state of confusion. This also explains why there are varying number of elements used by designers and how one can expand the basic elements of design, Form and Colour, into varying number of elements for meeting their purpose. Results of this study will help designers to make use of the popular method of designing with more clarity and customize it to suit one's requirements.
