The process of design is so varied from person to person, is there a fundamental process to design? Like life, is there a circle of design?
Being creative is called a number of things, a skill, a gift, a character trait, ect. For each person the process of being creative cannot be the same, just as the act of being creative is just a varied. Even the end result is varied in the creative world. A logical thought is that the goal of all design is a complete or finished project. Although, for many creatives the process of exercising a creative thought is the goal. Not all processes must make universal sense, but they must make us critically evaluate the results, whatever they may be.
