To innovate is to make changes in something established or by introducing new methods, ideas, or products.

What makes a design innovative?

An innovative design can be either a brand new product or a redesign of an existing product. A brand new product adds a new level to the market and the user, while a redesign improves an existing product place on the market and user. You should always remember that a good design is always the simplest possible working solution.

How do you Innovate?

There are lots of simple techniques that help you innovate, such as to minimize or maximize part or the whole of your existing design. Ask the people using your product they should have lots of ideas, if you don’t want to ask then watch them use it. The final idea is to combine existing features to make a new device. An important point to remember is to strive for continual innovation, not instant perfection.
