    The creative process


    As UX professionals, one of our most vital tools is creativity. Creativity allows us to develop innovative solutions that help users meet their goals, and delight them along the way. Sometimes, however, getting your creativity up and running can be a challenge. There are times when the gears aren’t turning, times when you hit a design wall and can’t come up with a single new idea.
    Rockwell Automation's User Experience Design Team offers some practical steps to help you get your creative juices flowing. We’ll take you on a creativity journey from sketching in the middle ages (costumes not required) to designing in the present day. You'll increase your capacity to be creative, as well as see what's worked for us at Rockwell Automation.
