Research Thesis Project titled Exploration of Creative Methodologies.
EXPLORATION OF CREATIVE METHODOLOGIES
This project shows the research thesis for my undergraduate degree in industrial design. It was developed with Kimberley Orozco. The objective of this thesis was to offer an introduction and simple explanation to new design students about creative methodologies; a term that is often used by many but actually understood by few.
The thesis starts from the meaning of creativity: what it is, where does it come from, and how it works. After, it explains what is a methodology and its difference with words like, method, tool, technique, etc. Then, it focuses solemnly on creative methodologies: the different types, how they’re useful and how to compare them. Finally, it shares a selection of the best creative methodologies and concludes by inviting the reader to try diverse methodologies in order for them to create their own.
Along the introduction and the five chapters, we share professional and personal experiences that can relate to the presented results of our extensive research. Our goal was to inspire the reader to undertake a new project and venture to experiment with new creative methodologies to enhance their own creative process.
