The objectives of this study are to explore design activities such as design process and design information through protocol analysis of design sessions of expert designers and student designers and to understand the relations between their personal creativity characteristics and design activities. In protocol analysis, we instituted dual coding schemes based on design information and design process. Regarding design process, an adequate distribution of design activities in process may be necessary to bring out a good solution. It has been identified that design processes of expert designers are more effective than those of student designers. Regarding personal creativity, relatively widely different characteristics have been identified for the eight participants, and much of personal creativity traits can be associated with observed design activities. This suggests that personal creativity characteristics could be utilized in understanding design activity characteristics and such understanding could be helpful in improving individual or team-based design problem solving.
