■Title
A Study of Cognitive Thinking in Visual Design: The Utility of Words of Different Semantic Types to Inspire Creative Thinking

■Authors
Yang Yu, Yukari Nagai, Eunyoung Kim, Fei Fei, Jie Jiang

■Abstract
To contribute to a better understanding of creativity in design activities, an experimental study was conducted using a cognitive approach based on semantic words ("Semantic words" refer to words that use different semantic types) to inspire creative thinking in visual design. The objective of this study was to determine to what extent semantic words can help designers inspire creative thinking, and the influence of semantic words with different types on design.
