The process of coming up with a multitude of creative ideas is known as ‘Divergent Thinking’ and the narrowing down process is known as ‘Convergent Thinking’.

Both Divergent Thinking and Convergent Thinking are cornerstone concepts within design disciplines such as Service Design and are often represented by a diamond shape.
