Abstract

Through an exploratory approach to design practice, this thesis project examines how conceptual constraints can be used to structure the design process and allow for richer visual interpretations of banal information.
More specifically, it explores how three "creative operations” derived from computer modeling (combination, analogy, mutation), as proposed by John S. Gero and Michael A. Rosenman, can be used to liberate information from its structured, restrictive and mass consumed context.
These "creative operations" are used as conceptual constraints to disrupt routine processes in design and generate different visual propositions for the interpretation of weather data.
This framework for exploration demonstrates how the use of conceptual constraints can contribute to a designer’s practice by stimulating the development of alternative design processes, thereby generating richer visual propositions for a given design problem.

ds conference4th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON DESIGN CREATIVITY (ICDC), 2nd to 4th November, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA

NEW DEADLINE- Full paper submission: 22nd April, 2016 Design creativity is an important and interesting topic of study in design. Since it involves the profound and essential nature of design, design creativity is expected to be a key in not only addressing the social problems that we are facing, but also producing an innate appreciation for beauty and happiness in our minds. In order to elucidate the nature of design creativity, the following issues are being studied: cognitive processes underlying...

Special Interest Group (SIG)Design Creativity

The objective of SIG - Design Creativity is to study creativity in design. We have not sufficiently clarified creativity, especially in the context of design, although it is a very interesting characteristic in the thinking process of humans. This research discusses creativity in design instead of trying to identify its standard characteristics. That is, it tries to answer the question “What is design?” from the viewpoint of creativity, for two perspectives. First, this SIG discusses the characteristics...
