The aim of our research is to stimulate cross disciplinary design collaboration to improve innovation processes in product and service design domain. We focus on the intersection of biotechnology and

A Further Exploration of the Three Driven Approaches to Combinational Creativity

TLDR
Better understanding of combinational creativity in practical design is provided, which delivers benefits to designers in improving creative idea generation, and supports design researchers in exploring future ideation methods and design support tools employing the concept of 'combination'.

THE CONCEPTUAL DISTANCES BETWEEN IDEAS IN COMBINATIONAL CREATIVITY

TLDR
Insight into conceptual distances for forming combinational ideas is provided and the results from a case study indicate that far-related ideas are used more often than closely-related ones to produce creative combinational designs and that far -related ideas could lead to more creative outcomes.

The Design and Development of a Magic-based Teaching Method in Facilitating Creative Design Thinking

This design case introduces a design and development process of using magic performance as a method to facilitate students’ creative design thinking in user-centered design. Magic performance is used

COMPUTATIONAL CONCEPTUAL DISTANCES IN COMBINATIONAL CREATIVITY

TLDR
This paper explores conceptual distances in combinational creativity from computational perspectives and suggests far-related ideas could lead to outcomes that are more creative than closely-related ones.

Three driven approaches to combinational creativity: Problem-, similarity- and inspiration-driven

TLDR
The three driven approaches proposed in this study have provided an understanding of how combinational creativity functions in design and could be used as a set of creative idea generation methods for supporting designers in producing creative design ideas.

Balancing Academic Rigor and Creative Thinking: A Transformational Approach to Teaching Senior Design.

TLDR
