A creative product must be not only original and surprising (novel); it must also satisfy the need for which it was created. Under functional creativity, the solution to a problem is supposed to be both generalizable and elegant. “An elegant solution solves the present problem in a pleasing way, a generalizable solution leads on to other uses above and beyond the present problem, even though they may not, at first, be obvious” (Cropley 108). The most creative solutions are found when a person goes beyond accounting for novelty and appropriateness.
