Creativity from Design and Innovation Perspectives

Abstract : The notion of innovation is associated with abundant literature presenting a variety of viewpoints, some complementary and others contradictory. In this literature the concept of innovation is often associated with novelty. Elsewhere the same reference to novelty is used to describe creativity, "the creative process is seen as the sequence of thoughts and actions that leads to a novel, adaptive production" (Lubart, 2010). The confusion is further maintained by the fact that research in the fields of creativity and innovation address similar questions. This article aims to explore the relationship between creativity, design, and innovation. To this end, a first part develops a short state of the art review of creativity and the point of view of creativity as a process. Then, design is presented as a process and considered in its creative character. In a third part, the link between creativity and design is made through the notion of ingenium. Finally the article introduces a new manner of considering creativity from a design centered perspective.
