    This paper discusses the relations between stages of design projects. The literature review is based on authors who already discussed the subject to present a reflection on the stages of the process, focusing on the stage of problematization in order to establish relationships and show the importance of this stage in projects. It is intended to show that the problematization has an impact on the creativity phase and, consequently, on the results of the project. The literature review shows the link between the problematization and the design process as a whole. Besides proposing that with a well developed problematization the designer acquires the necessary knowledge about the project so that the creativity stage is well-done and the project results are more assertive. In this way, it is considered that the problematization has importance in the whole project process. So article shows the importance of this step for a design project.
