Abstract

This paper presents the concrete application of the INNOWIZ methodology in a design education context. This methodical philosophy is used as a structural backbone in teaching the product design process to students in industrial product design. Observations and teaching experience have shown that these students need a method to manage their creative processes, inspiration in the form of tools and techniques in order to open up their mindset for idea exploration, and a personal approach to tackle any specific situation and to deal with many different design briefs.
