This paper sets out to provide insight into the current debate on art, science, and the need for rigor in providing a framework for the interpretation of creativity within design. A literature overview will outline the common concept on creativity processes. The model will be critiqued from various theoretical perspectives. The theory and approaches are then applied to a case study through which the conceptual framework of creativity will unfold. It is, however, not an exhaustive literature review, as the literature chosen is in particular very applicable to the case study in this paper. The paper will represent ongoing research.
