A Holding Pattern (see Barth,T & Raein, M 2007) is a term drawn from aviation, and has been adapted in order to describe and define the provisional activities which designers adopt, when they are faced with new and uncertain ideas (for instance a new client’s problems or brief). This term essentially describes these entrepreneurial stances, in relation to a number of different scenarios, including the relationship between client, user and the designer. More significantly, the tacit management of various (and often variable) uncertain agencies involved in creative activities, before committing to a design strategy, idea, process or outcome.
