What to do if the design application is rejected by the patent office? If you receive the rejection of design application, you must have at least one possibility to reply to the trademark and patent office and try to overcome the rejection. However, if there is no possibility to overcome the rejection, you can apply again for the design protection.
The trademark and patent offices do not check novelty and individual character of the design. The most important aspect in the design registration is that the representation of the design would be according to the national law requirements.
The requirements, how design must be represented, differs from country to country. In Europe, the designs can be colourful or linear. It can be photographies as well. In US, the representation of the design must be linear, if not, the application is rejected.
