Stormdeck: Inspiration for Graphic Designers in a Deck of Cards

When you need to do a little creative brainstorming, what’s your typical approach? Do you immediately start typing things into Google? Head over to Pinterest or photo sharing sites and apps? Or are you more likely to go analog, start doodling, or flipping through the pages of books and magazines? The creators of a new Kickstarter campaign think they have a better idea: a deck of cards designed to spark your imagination and find the right approach to a creative project. Stormdeck is the name of the card set, and it features 80 cards organized into five categories: Style, Message, Color, Texture, and Font.

The deck is also meant to help foster clear communication with clients, who might otherwise have a difficult time putting their wishes into words.

The Stormdeck campaign has already surpassed its funding goal with more than a week to go. The cards are yours for a pledge of £15 and are expected to ship in December 2015 (and thus might make a great holiday gift for the creatives on your list).

To learn more about the project, check out the video below, and head over to Kickstarter.
