Are you looking for a practical tool to help you apply design thinking in your projects or make your brainstorming sessions more effective? This deck of 80 cards, based on the Double Diamond of design, helps you turn your ideas into action.
What is the meaning of innovation? It means to introduce something new, be it a new method, a new idea, a new design, or a new process. This excellent tool created by authors Carola Verschoor and Rik de Vette will enable you to do exactly that. The authors view innovation as the creation, development and implementation of new forms of value. It is a verb, because ultimately for innovation to happen, thoughts and ideas must be set in motion by doing.
Infinite Double Diamond is a unique deck of cards designed to help innovators, designers and entrepreneurs to become more flexible with their approach, and to innovate and create. These 80 cards not only help you discover what a customer really needs, it also helps you to test, improve and grow your proposition. They have curated a selection of the best, most impactful methodologies and tools, drawing from disciplines as diverse as research, service design, experience design, business and growth-hacking. Each card is a point in a network of alternative approaches to test your idea or improve your business. They are easy to use, versatile in application and deliver useful results time after time.
How to use this deck?
The cards are easy to use whether you’re a pro or a newbie. The front of the cards contains the name of a design thinking tool, reference to the phase in the design process and guidelines regarding time, materials and mindset needed. On the back, players will find a simple, to-the-point description of the methodologies and tools. Together, the cards have the structure of a recipe: “1, 2, 3 and you are done when …”.
