Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject Design (Industry, Graphics, Fashion), grade: 1,3, Linnaeus University (Design), course: Methods at Work, language: English, abstract: Many design methods are unconsciously used in creative processes (Lindemann, 2003). However understanding design methods better, gives the opportunity to improve the design process by applying adequate methods more consciously (Andreasen, Hansen, & Cash, 2015). Even though unconscious design methods are processed much faster, they can lead to ineffectiveness (Lindemann, 2003). By making use of adequate methods, the process can lead to a more satisfying outcome. Furthermore the design process becomes more approachable to other disciplines working with a designer.
