The term is used in distinction to the fine arts, which are those that produce objects with no practical use, whose only purpose is to be beautiful or stimulate the intellect in some way. In practice, the two often overlap. Applied arts largely overlaps with decorative arts, and the modern making of applied art is usually called design.
Example of applied arts are:
- Industrial design – mass-produced objects.
- Architecture – also counted as a fine art.
- Ceramic art
- Automotive design
- Fashion design
- Interior design
- Graphic design
- Cartographic (map) design
