In my design courses I refer to them as “Design Haikus”. Why haikus? Because the classic haiku form – with its limitation to three lines, with the first line being five syllables, the second line seven syllables, and the third returning to five syllables – demonstrates how externally enforced restrictions can drive new and unique creative efforts. A term used elsewhere to describe such situations is “enabling constraints”, which refers to conditions imposed from outside of an individuals’ control that inspires them to think or create in unanticipated yet productive ways.
