The Creative Process. The creative process is not just iterative; it’s also recursive. It plays out “in the large” and “in the small”—in defining the broadest goals and concepts and refining the smallest details. It branches like a tree, and each choice has ramifications, which may not be known in advance. http://www.dubberly.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/ddo_creative_process.pdf
