  • About the Author

Creativity is creating something that wasn’t there before, seeing novel relationships between artefacts, ideas, products, places and people. It is just one aspect of intelligence. Nevertheless, you need a certain level of IQ to be creative, although people with a high IQ are not necessarily creative.

To survive, a business needs to work smarter, faster and leaner; continually develop new products and services and improve existing ones. Good design is an important spur to creativity. It is often the main competitive advantage of successful companies.
