Artistic Versus Generic Design Creativity

Artistic Versus Generic Design Creativity

Abstract

The field of design is expanding as new areas of application and new approaches are being developed. Different concepts of design obviously leads to deviant notions of creativity. If creativity is a major component in design education and design research, such different notions needs to be articulated. This paper investigates two major concepts of design creativity: one links to classic, the other to emerging fields. Writing on design seem to suggest that creativity is the same regardless of field. Writing on creativity, on the other hand, suggests field-specific creativity. This paper articulates the notion of creativity in different design fields.
