This course demystifies creativity, equipping designers with tools to foster diverse thinking, collaborative problem-solving, and creative breakthroughs. It is tailored for design professionals seeking to elevate their creative skills and approach.

Creativity is often cited as one of the most important skills of the 21st century. Especially for creative professionals such as designers, understanding and nurturing their creativity is a lifelong task. Unfortunately, creativity is often misunderstood as a sudden burst of inspiration, the famous kiss of the muse, on which creative professionals depend to thrive in their careers. During this workshop, we will debunk this myth by looking at different models of the creative process and reflecting on the specific needs of participants when it comes to creativity. Tools and techniques tailored to different stages of the creative process will be introduced to empower participants to take ownership of their creative juices.

Workshop aims

In this workshop, participants will be guided to better understand what their creative process looks like. You will also learn about tools and techniques to encourage different ways of thinking in the creative process.

Learning outcomes

Participants will understand the relevance of creativity in the context of design on three levels:
  1. at a personal level (What does ‘being creative’ mean to me?)
  2.  in their own field (What is my creative process like?)
  3. in the wider context of the creative industries (How does creativity flourish, e.g., in diverse teams?)
Participants will be able to use tools and techniques to help them navigate through the creative process, e.g., to:
  1. encourage divergent or convergent thinking;
  2. get out of a creative block;
  3. foster creativity in a collaborative environment.
