Design process involved different sub-processes and components and each of them interacts with each other to build up a comprehensive system. Different aspects of factors may affect the process, which may lead to different design outcomes. In order to reach for different design outcomes, different design processes and methods should be introduced and adopted in order to maximise the result. Facing the changing nature of design discipline, design processes no longer lie on the conventional prototype, but in a more diverging and interactive model to incorporate new ideas and creativities to create breakthrough and innovation. This paper aims to understand the relationships between designers’ emotion and decision-making process in every step and how does it affect the whole design process. Designers can understand the relations in-between and hence develop tailor-made methods and techniques to manipulate their own design process for required outcomes.
