General principles of constructive design actions – based on the qualitative analysis of established conceptions and experts’ statements of technical and non-technical (artistic) design processes – are presented and discussed. On the basis of the derived continuum of design processes the discipline “Technisches Design” (Technical Design) is categorized. Individual design processes in this discipline are regarded as multiple and complex problem solving processes (consisting of so called sub-problems). These sub-problems are characterized as belonging rather to the technical or the artistic pole of the continuum. Finally, a preview with regard to the consequences of the results – e.g. the support of design processes– is given.

Keywords: human action, gestalt, artistic design process, technical design process
