Humanities, Design and Creativity (HDC) are often regarded as subjective imaginative displacement. An episode transpired as a sudden insight by a designer or artist who immediately responds to it based on available designs to inspire creativity. There are three levels of form development in design and creativity; (1) The early phase, when the orientation of the image elements is questioned; (2) The middle phase, when the type of form in which artist or designer's format of the image elements needs to be considered; and (3) The final phase, when decisions that lead to a more detailed picture of the image is developed. The observation and investigation of the design process is able to signify the retrospective or mysterious elements of the imaginative capabilities. From the perspective of creative design studios, the most challenging states are the not guaranteed creative incidents, which may occur during the design process. However, current design projects with empirical studies are able to unlock the unexplained incidents. The important strategies involved in creative design studies include problem solving, normative, synthesis, analysis, reflective and hermeneutics.

Mutual comprehension in all the design processes are from comparison areas across all domains of application, including design technology and industrial applications, visual communication and new media, arts and crafts, cultural studies and social implication of art and creative technology.
