Design Suggestions Using Similarity Information

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Inspiration influences all creative works. In this paper, we propose
a novel method to generate automatic design suggestion with the
aim to inspire designers. The retrieval method for the ‘suggestion
samples’ will use similarity information. These can be attained
from the grouping of samples created by designers whilst working
on new or previous designs. Our aim is to improve and speed the
design process. In addition, the method allows designers to share
inspiring samples without sharing core ideas, as only similarity
data is processed. We believe this method can improve designs
and impact the creative community.
