…the Design Process?
We have been posed the question WHAT IS THE DESIGN PROCESS as a group for our Cultural Module and after a little research there a some things to question.
What would you say the design process is:
- A process to solve a problem?
- A process to be creative?
- A process to satisfy a need?
- A process as a Human activity process?
For this post I am going to write later my thoughts on this, but for those people following it would be good if you shared your view.

Other questions I’m thinking about regarding describing the design process are:
What do you notice?
What’s the generic?
What would you use from them?
What are the key stages
When are you focusing on:
– general overview of concept and thinking holistically?
– design details?
When are you:
exploring and generating? (divergent)
synthesising and deciding? (convergent)

Some other Design Process Models found through research are:
- Design Council
- Design Against Crime
- Nesta Age unlimited project
After a frenzied morning yesterday discussing what the design process is. We as a group came up with a concept around the design process.
We see the design process being similar to the ancient Romans favourite event, fighting in the Coliseum. The Coliseum is the cauldron of the process where ideas (Similar looking to Neurons). We see the audience as the client and others, we suggested using Edward De Bono’s Six Thinking Hat method to assess ideas from this viewpoint.
Neurons are the fighters. Just imagine, ideas start off weak and then start to be trained up to fight.
