Xiaofei Wang


Analysis and empirical study with the experimental method has been widely applied to study of a variety of disciplines as a common one. In the past few years, quite a lot of researchers expert in the visual convey theory have also introduced this method into the study field of graphic design. In this regard, what has the most research achievements is study on influences of design tool on formation of originality. This paper resorts to the experimental method based on the hand-printed way and the digital way to analyze the path dependence problem of originality formation. This paper is a retrial of the experiment by Stone and Candice (2007) and comes up with conclusions different from conclusions by Stone and Candice (2007) by a comparative analysis of the number of design solutions obtained in the retrial of the experiment. These different conclusions also originate from differences of design tasks and differences of originality in addition to differences of the screening method of originality.
