THE CREATIVE PROCESS IN PRODUCT DESIGN
Duration: 6 weeks
Start Date: 29 November 2021
The Creative Process in Product Design introduces and develops the creative thinking + design process methodology, typical of a designer.
Each Product Designer follows a series of steps oriented towards developing an idea, in order to shape it and turn it into a product or service that responds to users’ needs and which is successful in the market. It is a personal process, but it begins from a structured methodological basis that IED certifies as the key to designers’ success.
As part of IED Barcelona’s Design First programmes, this online course provides the tools for remote working and new methodologies over six modules: Context, Trends + Inspiration, Ideation, Creation, Project + Prototype and Communication.
– Understand what constitutes the creative process in Product Design.
– Discover how great designers create and develop their creative proposals.
– Become acquainted with the steps to follow to gain inspiration, generate ideas, create and communicate them.
– Apply a method that enables creative talent to be fostered and unleashed.
As a Project-Based Learning (PBL) course, students are provided with the necessary e-learning tools to drive collaborative working techniques in the realisation of projects.
The subjects are structured around three axes, to facilitate learning and the practical application of the knowledge acquired:
How to tackle each creative stage and which strategies to employ, following the advice of experts and discovering their experiences when it comes to differentiating proposals and ideas.
What are the most effective tools to develop each stage of the creative process, and the best instruments to foster creativity and teamwork.
Guided by the teacher, in each stage progress is made towards the development of a creative project that solidifies the skills acquired in dominating a method and utilising tools.
The course is aimed at people who have a vocation for the creative disciplines, but have never been able to delve deeper into their methodology, secrets and tools. It is also conceived for those who want to explore the territories of creativity, understand them and discover a possible professional development towards creative companies or creative profiles, which are increasingly in demand in the labour market.
– Passionate about the world of Product Design and creativity.
– Interested in exploring the development of the creative processes of Product Design.
– Interested in redirecting their professional field towards creative disciplines.
– Interested in improving their knowledge about disruptive thinking methods.
The Creative Process in Product Design course is conceived as an initial contact with this discipline before deciding to study an Undergraduate or BA (Hons) Degree.
Completion of the course does not guarantee access to degree courses; however, it offers the student an excellent practical pathway to evaluate in which direction they wish to channel their future career.
