Title Inferno and exaltation - How to design Creativity and support Interaction Designers
Author Khan, Zayera
Date 2000
English abstract
This masters thesis is about how to enhance creativity and investigates the design process of interaction designers, in terms of the creative process, design support tools and especcially through a concept presented in this thesis. The concept is called DSTZ (Design Support Tool Z) and suggests ways in how to support a designer in the creative process. An empirical study was carried out in the thesis that consisted of a survey conducted on 8 "interaction designers" investigating how interaction designers work and if they require or need any design support. A design survey was later conducted on 18 "interaction designers" of which 9 were professionals and 9 were students, to investigate the concept DSTZ and the creativity enhancing aspect. The resuls from the empirical studies show that a design support tool is desired and DSTZ has features that are useful and can enhance creativity. The features consist of 8 palettes and 3 funtions that are manifested in DSTZ. Further investigation is required in order to find data that support the statement that creativity can be enhanced through a design support tool.
