Nigel Cross is probably already familiar to many of you as the grandfather of design research. If not, you should really get to know him. Here is one of my favourite quotes from him this week:

Creative thinking has tended to be regarded as mysterious, but new explanatory descriptions of creativity in design are beginning to emerge from empirical studies. In particular, it no longer seems correct to promote the key feature of creative design as dependent upon an intuitive, heroic ‘creative leap’ from problem to solution. Problem framing, co-evolution, and conceptual bridging between problem space and solution space seem to be better descriptors of what actually happens in creative design.
