Further, this unknown points to the endless possibilities confronting a designer. The designer explores the unknown based on imagination, and the ability to foresee and predict, coupled with theoretical and experimental insight, and supported by models.

5 explores how competence and skills affect method use in design. 6 brings these elements together by looking at design philosophy and principles. 7 closes the chapter by discussing how the design process is influenced by the designers’ perceptions of design activity. 2 Designers and Their Practice ‘Practice’, in the pursuit of craft or profession, is core to our ideas of design.
