Term to Know

    • Creative Process
    • The creative process is a step-by-step process that designers use to follow a project to completion.

This essentially consists of things like planning, ideation, refinement, production, and more that we'll touch on in later lessons. Artists and designers may be inclined to just jump into a project at times, but it's really important to consider this process in advance, because it's going to help you avoid potential obstacles and pitfalls in the future.

ExampleYou are designing the inside of a building and you did not budget ahead of time.  You just realized that glass is so expensive and you run out of money. Now you're left with a partially decorated building. Or maybe you didn't realize, as just how long it takes to paint, and you don't get a chance to finish it off by furnishing the design because you ran out of time. Or maybe you just didn't take the time to plan out how something's going to be properly assembled, and now you're left with something that's not only incomplete, but improperly assembled.

Having a step-by-step process can release the pressure of a project by breaking it down into multiple tasks.

Summary

Well, that ends this quick lesson for today on the creative design process. This lesson hammered home the necessity of things like planning, ideation, refinement, production and more.

Keep up the learning and have a great day!
