Abstract: The aim of this paper is to provide educators and Industrial Design professionals with an insight into the development of innovative design ideation images manipulation techniques and, highlight how these techniques could be used to not only improve student ideation skills, but also as design enablers for a broader range of professionals working both inside and outside the creative industries. The review of literature highlights the changing role of the Industrial Designer through influencing factors such as increased involvement in upstream design activities and the ‘maker movement’. The paper documents research conducted with postgraduate Industrial Design students in a specific year group within a Higher Education Institution (HEI). The study is a pilot project with a small cohort of 29 Industrial Design Postgraduate students which will form part of the ongoing pedagogic development of the skills required for the ever evolving discipline of Industrial Design. The study covers one academic semester, where postgraduate Industrial Design students were asked to use novel ideation methods to produce a range of aesthetic design directions for a communication device. The results of the research showed significant improvements in ideation workflow, the suitability and quality of the student’s form generation, as well as the perceived quality of the final design outcomes.
