‘Creativity’ is the generation of new ideas – either new ways of looking at existing problems, or of seeing new opportunities, perhaps by exploiting emerging technologies or changes in markets.

‘Innovation’ is the successful exploitation of new ideas. It is the process that carries them through to new products, new services, new ways of running the business or even new ways of doing business.

‘Design’ is what links creativity and innovation It shapes ideas to become practical and attractive propositions for users and customers. Design may be described as creativity deployed to a specific end

"Previously, experiences of time emerged from nature as given. Nowadays, people integrate nature-time, body-time, inner-time, clock-time, and global 24/7 systems-time."

Very interesting essay on @nextnature of Caroline Nevejan about our changed perception of time

"Dasein = design"

In the view of Rotterdam Design Prize winners VacantNL and Vlaamsch Broodhuys, this quote of Henk Oosterling in his 2009 @Premsela lecture has lost none of it’s force
