I would be interested to know if anyone is doing work which seeks to establish differences in process between design and other creative disciplines such as music. Obviously outcomes/artefacts are different, but are the processes the same?  If they are indeed the same, then why do we differentiate the design process from the creative process? Questions, questions.This is my new, post PhD research direction and one which I seek to partly pursue through my own creative practice as a musician and illustrator. In my previous work I used Swann's (2002) design process model to help describe the processes of my illustration students when they interpreted written text into illustrations. Here is the link to the thesis if anyone is interested.http://mro.massey.ac.nz/handle/10179/1046

Creative practice as research method is a new venture for me, but I do think that having undergone the rigours of a traditional PhD I may now be in a position to develop verifiable knowledge. If I don't, well I'm going to have a ball writing songs and painting! [log in to unmask]
