This study explored the transformation of imagination and creativity from an initial idea into a final product in the design domain. Five award-winning university teachers, who have supervised award-winning students in domestic and foreign design competitions, and their nine students participated. Data collection consisted of interviews, which were coded verbatim, with the teachers and students, and triangulation and member checks were used to validate the study. The results indicated that the design process is based on the interaction of imagination and creativity. This imagination-creativity process involves the transformation of initial ideas to the final product in four stages: (1) the idea and analysis stage; (2) generation and modification stage; (3) implementation and evaluation stage; and (4) communication and optimization stage. The idea and analysis stage focuses on idea generation. Teachers guide students in considering the value of ideas through discussion of topics including relevant competition, local needs, social issues, and traditional culture. In the generation and modification stage, teachers employ creative-thinking strategies to instruct students to examine their ideas and possible products and industrial demands to modify design ideas. In the implementation and evaluation stage, students create a prototype of their ideas based on the practicality, aesthetics, costs, materials of the final product and user experience. In the communication and optimization stage, teachers lead students in producing a well-designed product to meet the needs of marketing and design competition. Suggestions for design and innovation in education are proposed.
