Paper Abstract

Several design approaches are described which feature the use of your head as a design tool. This involves thinking about the design task at hand, trying to break it into separate, easily understood subtasks, and approaching these in a creative and intelligent fashion, as only humans can do. You and your computer can become a very powerful team when this design philosophy is adopted.
