This paper describes the early development of a practical framework for the assessment of products of design that is aimed at resolving some of the confusion surrounding "creativity" within that field. In particular, key concepts from problem solving theory are used to distinguish between the creative level and creative style of a product, and a new assessment instrument for the creative style of a product is introduced. The instrument is applied to a selection of fastener products to illustrate its use and explore its benefits and limitations.
