NGC Creative Floral Design is an acknowledged art form in which creativity, imagination and originality are essential ingredients. No longer are designs bound by rules, styles, or traditional patterns; nor are they designs in space. They are designs of space, for in all Creative Design the relationship between form and space has become a vital consideration.

Designers learn to select fewer components but to use them boldly. Designers create space within, around and about the physical components by using the organizational technique called interpenetration of space. They may penetrate space by placing components that thrust from foreground to rear ground of a design, or from the rear ground to the foreground.

NGC Creative Design Style, as in NGC Traditional Design Style, must adhere to the principles of design (balance, rhythm, contrast, dominance, proportion, scale).
