Even though there has been a considerable interest in creativity and design as collaborative efforts more recently, there is yet a need for models that provide an integrative perspective on collaborative creative design. While cognitivist accounts of creativity are still quite dominant in the field of design research, it is argued in this paper that respective models fall short to account for the emergent properties and structures that arise out of the interaction of human actors with their environment. To be able to account for the social and material contingencies out of which different forms of creative design take shape a practice-oriented perspective is outlined and its implications discussed. The intent of this primarily theoretical paper is to open up a new research agenda that helps to understand how creative practices take shape and are enacted in particular settings.
