This paper presents an ethnographic study of a game design in a natural setting. Based on analyses of excerpts of interactions between designers, our approach combines content and interactional approaches to study collaborative creativity. The aim of this combined approach is to construct different interactional formats of creative interaction which account for both design content evolution and interactional dynamism. The analysis of two excerpts shows how ideas are generated, elaborated, delivered and received by designers.

Keywords: collaborative design, video game design, production format, collaborative creativity
