This paper presents a prototype of intelligent advisory system based on the aesthetic factors regarding product design, with the emphasis on appurtenant design recommendations. Aesthetics certainly belong to the more complex design factors. Although some literature can be found about the aesthetic design of consumer goods, the designer still has to amass quite a lot of experience and knowledge in the field of aesthetics, in order to choose and carry out appropriate design actions for improving the aesthetic value of the product. The aim of the paper is not to discuss aesthetics from philosophical point of view, but to present problematic of aesthetics trough eyes of the mechanical design engineer, who is responsible for outer shape of the product already in conceptual design phase, where various influential factors determine the design.
