This paper presents an evaluation of creativity support cues in amock-up generator for designing a module-based mobile applicationto help spark ideas during the design process. After an initial testwith four types of creativity cues (Sparks) potential for assistance wasdiscovered in all four types (hand-holding, informative, bad example,challenging) between participants with various amount of designcompetences and experience. The mock-up generator, developed withVue.js, consists of a version with and without creativity support wasevaluated. The prototype was based on Visiolink’s (digital publishingcompany) approach to module-based releases, and was expanded withthe aforementioned Creativity Sparks for the comparative evaluation.The feedback from the participants showed the version created withSparks was preferred both in terms of usability of the system andthe final design, with a significant difference found in the Hedonicqualities. Most of the participants reported the Sparks having animpact on their design decisions and big-picture planning of the mock-up creation
