How do the cards facilitate deeper, clearer thinking?
There’s quite a bit of science behind them – illustrated cards have been used throughout history to imagine different versions of the future. Most of our deep thinking goes on without us being conscious of it – metaphor works as a conduit to carry this thinking out into our conscious thought stream. We use around 4 metaphors a minute in normal speech – a metaphor carries over a complex concept in a single word or phrase. These cards reverse that process – we begin with the picture/metaphor and use it to reveal all the hidden thinking that’s going on around an idea or issue. It’s such a simple and clever tool for generating useful stream of ideas around any given topic.
The cards are 55x85mm, printed on 350gsm card with soft feel lamination on both sides. The curved corners make them a pleasure to look at and less susceptible to damage. They are designed for longevity, to feel good to handle, pick up and put down, and move around a tabletop. The boxes are bespoke designed and easy to carry in your bag or briefcase, making the set highly portable for use in the widest possible range of settings.
Cards come with full instructions, plus access to a webpage with ideas and case studies. Cards are £26 plus shipping. Cards ship worldwide.
