The Creativity process is about ability to see/find connections/relationships among seemingly unrelated old ideas, images etc.
One way to approach and solve creative problems is by following the 5-step process of:
- gathering material,
- intensely working with the material by experimenting in different ways of putting it together, and document every possibility
- stepping away stop working on the problem for the day,
- Regardless of how long, you need to do something that takes your mind off of the problem and so that the idea can come back to you naturally,
- testing and try out your idea in the real world and adjust it based on user feedback.
