The purpose of this paper is to present systemic creative product design methods based on user’s life scenarios. Based on the nature of scenario and user’s needs, combining with design principles and modeling activities in creative design process, this paper presented a solution to discovery user’s needs from scenarios, and transfer these needs to structures, outlined a creative design model and some creative design methods, these methods include scenario building methods, needs/functions discovering methods, structure generating methods and design evaluating methods. By using these methods, a creative product design case was offered. The results indicated that by different scenarios describing and analyzing, designer can discovery different user’s potential needs. These needs can help designers to determine the functions and structures of the product they design.
