The Stage of Business – Design Paradigm the Creative Process

Creative integration is no mystery, however, many techniques are personal approaches to get the process moving. Just remember, the process has structure. Often, when people struggle to craft a creative solution, it is because they have not done sufficient pre-work to establish the design rules. Design is an objective solution to a specific problem. Successful designs are good because they solve the problem well.

Design paradigms are models, archetypes, or quintessential examples of designed solutions to problems. The term “design paradigm” is used within the design professions, including architecture, industrial design and engineering design, to indicate an archetypal solution.

For example a Swiss army knife is a design paradigm illustrating the concept of a single object that changes configuration to address a number of problems.

Design paradigms can be used either to describe a design solution, or as an approach to design problem solving. Problem solving occurs through a process of abstraction and characterization of design solutions, with subsequent categorization into problem solving types.

This approach is akin to the use of metaphor in language; metaphors are used to help explain concepts that are new or unfamiliar, and to bridge between a problem we understand and a problem we don’t.

Design paradigms then can be seen as higher order metaphors; as the often three-dimensional distillation of a working relationship between parts, between groups of things, between the known and the unknown. In this sense, a bridge is a paradigm of the connection between the known and the unknown, and the functional equivalent of a physical bridge is consequently used in many fields from computer hardware to architecture.

The design paradigms concept has proven so powerful in traditional fields of design, that it has inspired a branch of computer science, where computational analogies to design paradigms are commonly called design patterns. Importantly however, in design professions the term “design pattern” usually describes a two-dimensional structure, whereas the term paradigm (or model) usually implies a higher order, having three or more dimensions.

Design paradigms can be used as a mechanism to find creative solutions to complex problems.

We have glanced over our shoulder to get a glimpse of the past, tried to pin down the present and peered into the future. We have pondered the importance of risk, change and creativity on the future of business. It is time to take a look at what these impacts of the economy and the stage of business have to do with industry.

Art is the jealous mistress. Design is the jealous mistress. Creativity is the key. Commitment, determination and humility are the way.

An Incomparable Home Business Designed to Provide You With Everything You Need to Dominate Online

The home business industry has recently taken a change for the better. With thousands of opportunities available to work from home, only a select few have proven to allow the average person with little to no technical skills to achieve a thriving business from the comfort of their home.

Being involved in several home businesses myself, I felt like many of you do this very moment. The industry has become a magnet for those seeking to take advantage of someone’s current situation by promising them the world in a silver platter.

As I looked online for a home business that will give me the time and freedom to have with my family that I was looking for, I ran into every Tom, Dick and Harry trying to shove a home business opportunity down my throat. Do they honestly think that a person would be convinced to buy into their scheme by consistently promoting their business and making outlandish promises of wealth?

Continuing on my hunt for a home business that seemed possible to do, considering my computer skills were that of reading and sending emails and the occasional search for local maps, I did find something that caught my attention. For the simple reason that they were trying to push me away from becoming part of what they had to offer.

“Now this seems strange!” I thought to myself. “Why would they claim to be having such great success but are pushing me away by telling me that only a select few will qualify?” Aha! This is something crucial to consider when doing your research for a home business. A business that requires an application to become a part of is a good sign that they are not here to take your money and run.

While the average home business opportunity is looking for you to empty your wallets in order to join, this particular business is only choosing a select few to work with. Why? This allows for a more personal affiliation with new members and allows for one-on-one support and training. It also removes those looking for the “easy road” to financial freedom.

We all know that something good usually does not last forever and that promises of becoming rich overnight in a home business is most likely not true.

For this simple yet effective approach of marketing their home business did I decide on becoming more informed and eventually a new addition to their community. A community that has allowed me to better understand the meaning of teamwork, dedication, persistence, and reaching great achievements in business and in my personal life as well.

New Business Design – All You Need To Know To Start Trading In Style

So you’ve decided to set up a new business, the idea is good, the bank has given you the green light and everything is looking peachy. Wait a minute haven’t you forgotten something? Yes, that’s right – your trousers! With all that excitement you clean forgot to put any on this morning. Anything else you air brained fool? Yes 5 points there at the back – what you need above all else is an unforgettable look to knock the competition dead.

Step 1: The Logo Design

What are the things to look out for when thinking about your new business logo design? Well we could bore you to tears on the subject or we could just get right in there and divulge the secrets every successful company has learnt at some stage about good logo design. What? you want to hear the long, boring answer? All right we’ll save the secret to a successful logo design for another tutorial then. The first thing you need to do is establish your market, its no good trying to be all things to all men – it can’t be done. Lets say we are aiming at pretty young girls – and thats not a bad market to try and tap. Go for something pink and frilly and your halfway home. Alternatively for boys you might want to pick a blue fat typeface. For a corporate market you’d be a twat to move far away from greys, blues and reds.

Top Tip: Letterspacing – increase the spacing between each letter to a ridiculously large amount. This will then give a standard typeface such as ariel a new dignified gravitas that speaks volumes about your cutting edge new business design.

Step 2: The Business Stationary Design

The holy trinity in the designers canon. Your business card, your letterhead and not forgetting wee little compliment slip hiding away behind his big A4 size wise cracking brother. It’s imperative for every new business to order far more business stationary than they can ever hope to use. Typical figures for example might be a thousand double sided matte laminated business cards. You’ll be impressed with the quality and feel for approximately one week. Copiously handing them out at soirees and meet and greets before filing the remainder away in a drawer never to be seen again. As for letterhead and compliment slips, why not plumb for another couple of thousand print run with maybe an embossed logo to impress any blind friends you might have? Key design concepts are to try and make them in some way different from the billions of other designs that have gone before.

Top Tip: Try to avoid using large blocks of flat colour on letterheads and compliment slips. 9 times out of 10 the inks will start to fade on the print run and its going to look a bit shoddy.

Step 3: The Presentation Folder or Brochure Design

Now we’re cooking on gas. We’ve established a profound, daring, yet ultimately affectionate corporate logo design. We’ve taken the plunge and ordered well in excess of a quarter of a million business cards – sexy. Now comes the pinnacle of our design excitement. The corporate – or if you prefer – laid back brochure or folder design. Opinion is divided on what constitutes the best visual plan of attack on this matter. Some opt for the meat and potatoes style A4 brochure design. It’s not particularly clever or innovative but only the most limited retard could fail to work out what your meant to do with it, i.e. turn the pages from right to left and look at the pages, pausing occasionally to read any words or look at pictures. Others are more inclined to go down the less tried and tested folder and inserts route – scary! Just remember to make it look nice rather than ugly and you’ll not go too far wrong

Top Tip: Don’t allow anyone to persuade you into going for a tailored die cut folder design. It’s incredibly difficult for printers to get anything right and you’re begging for trouble. Remember K.I.S.S. Keep it simple stupid.

Step 4: The Website Design

Up until now we’ve been keeping our heads down and getting on very nicely, thankyou very much. that’s all about to end. Enter the world of website design. On paper it sounds easy enough – transfer what you’ve produced in your company brochure design up there on the old gogglebox. An easy mistake to make, what you haven’t taken into account is that web design was introduced to the world less by design more by some kind of nerd magic. To get anywhere near close to producing something that looks OK on paper onto a screen takes the kind of patience and understanding not normally found in your typical right thinking human being. Suffice to say you can only have your website based on a three column grid and no you can’t have it in your company colours, you’ll have it in grey or nothing, alright?.

Top Tip: Please don’t ask for a drop down menu. It looks fairly simple to do and your competitors all have them but we still can’t get it working right and god knows we’ve tried, god knows we’ve tried…

If that hasn’t inspired confidence and given you the incentive to give up already then there maybe some hope for you. Just remember design isn’t rocket science, although technically speaking the rocket did have to be designed at some stage so blah blah blah etc. etc…
