Title:SCWID: A Tool for Supporting Creative Work In Design
Author(s):Cook, Damon J.; Metcalf, Heather E.; Bailey, Brian P.
Subject(s):Human-computer interaction
Abstract:Computer tools offer enormous benefits for the early design process such as remote collaboration, advanced visualiza- tion, and the ability to run a design. However, current tools fail to support many elements of creative problem solving, inhibiting the early design process. From the literature on design theory and creativity, and extensive low-fidelity pro- totyping, we developed SCWID: a tool for Supporting Creative Work In Design. SCWID uses a large display to provide a shared visual context for alternative design ideas and uses multiple local displays for sketching details, navi-gating a particular idea, and manipulating alternatives. Grounded in creativity theory, the use of our tool facilitates creative thinking in the early stages of design for individual and groups of designers. Our tool can run either on a stand-alone machine or as part of a distributed workspace formed by connecting multiple clients to a server running on a ma-chine that drives any large display.
