How Do Designers Generate New Ideas? Design Heuristics Across Two Disciplines, Seda Yilmaz, Shanna R. Daly, Colleen M. Seifert, Richard Gonzalez Aug 2015

How Do Designers Generate New Ideas? Design Heuristics Across Two Disciplines, Seda Yilmaz, Shanna R. Daly, Colleen M. Seifert, Richard Gonzalez

Industrial Design Publications

Research supports the central role cognitive strategies can play in successful concept generation by individual designers. Design heuristics have been shown to facilitate the creation of new design concepts in the early, conceptual stage of the design process, as well as throughout the development of ideas. However, we know relatively little about their use in differing disciplines. This study examined evidence of design heuristic use in a protocol study with 12 mechanical engineers and 12 industrial designers who worked individually to develop multiple concepts. The open-ended design problem was for a novel product, and the designers’ sketches and comments were ...

The barong tagalong, also known as the barong Filipino or simply the barong, is the national men's shirt of the Philippines. It is a long-sleeved, collared shirt, buttoning halfway down the front.

The shirt is usually woven out of pina fiber, which is harvested from the leaves of the pineapple plant.


Faja, Ellen C. Mckinney Jan 2015

Faja, Ellen C. Mckinney

Apparel, Events and Hospitality Management Publications

The faja is a compression undergarment, similar to a girdle. The faja is worn very tight on the body to create an extremely curvy hourglass figure. The undergarment shifts organs and flesh and has been said to reduce one's appetite. The degree of figure shaping and body compression depends on the fabric composition. Versions can be found in mixtures of spandex, cotton, nylon, or latex; the less forgiving the material, the more flattering the effect. The undergarment may be closed with hooks, a zipper, or both.


Case Study As A Means To Document And Promote Creative Pattern Cutting Processes, Ellen Mckinney Feb 2013

Case Study As A Means To Document And Promote Creative Pattern Cutting Processes, Ellen Mckinney

Apparel, Events and Hospitality Management Conference Proceedings and Presentations

Practical experiences of traditional and emerging processes in creative pattern cutting can be successfully documented and promoted through case study. Case study is a comprehensive research strategy for investigating an empirical topic by following a set of pre-specified procedures (Yin, 1994). The case study method is different from research methods such as experiments and surveys where statistical generalization is used to extend the results to a larger population. In the case study method, analytic generalization is used to generalize from the case study to theoretical propositions. This paper explores reasons and solutions for undocumented pattern cutting knowledge. Pattern cutters mentally ...

Drawing As An Advent To Design Studio Education, Carl A. Rogers Jan 2007

Drawing As An Advent To Design Studio Education, Carl A. Rogers

Landscape Architecture Publications

Design studio education separates design and visual representation as individual subjects requiring different educational objectives. Each subject employs distinct skills such as line and value for visual representation or form and experience for design. The potential of design decisions should be based upon integration creative ideas with observation and representation skills. This paper describes a drawing process conceived by the author which considers issues of drawing including i) the pictorial function of drawing, ii) the ability of drawing to illuminate ideas, and iii) the relationship between seeing and imagining when drawing. The goal is to consider the intrinsic relationship between ...


Square Pegs, Round Holes: Thinking Creatively About Housing And Storage, Hilary T. Seo, Tanya Zanish-Belcher Jan 2006

Square Pegs, Round Holes: Thinking Creatively About Housing And Storage, Hilary T. Seo, Tanya Zanish-Belcher

Special Collections Publications and Papers

Providing proper housing and storage of archival materials is a primary goal undertaken in all archives. Standard containers for manuscripts, documents, photographs, three-dimensional objects, and other archival materials are readily available. However, for nonstandard, unusual, or complex objects that require additional support, developing housing or specialized storage can be problematic. Thinking creatively about housing and storage of archival materials increases the wealth of housing options available to archives even when a conservator is not available. Archivists can incorporate premade and traditional archival supplies in innovative ways to create structures that store and protect, while at the same time, limit handling ...
