- “Relationship of Creativity to Industrial Design” by Dr. Victor Papenek, Head of the Department of Product Design in the School of Design at North Carolina State College
The panel presented different ways they had used Creative Problem Solving to improve the Speech courses in their schools. One member of the panel had her students evaluate their own speech problems. Another member of the panel oriented his course to the problems in communication which his students had encountered in practice teaching.
Dr. Papanek spoke on the relationship of creativity to industrial design. He points out that industrial designers design products for monetary reasons rather than considering the actual needs of the population.
Mr. Papanek discusses the “myths of industrial design” such as
- Mass production
- Industry fulfills the people’s wants and needs
- the designer lacks control over what he designs
- quality does not count
He suggests areas where creative industrial design could make valuable contributions. Some of these area include: underdeveloped countries of the world; teaching and training aids for disabled children and adults; and testing equipment for scientific research
