CCDN 331 – Clarity Cards


Designer Clarity Cards

Inspired by Tarot Cards, my final project are Design Clarity Cards, to inspire designers to look past what is believed to be ‘efficient’ or ‘good’ design, to find their own values shaped through their own experiences.

here are multiple combinations that the cards can evoke, encouraging designers to consider how they can further their design practice.


There will be three categories: Majors, Mediums and Minors.


The Major deck will hold 10 cards that look at styles of design. These are;

  1. Meaningful
  2. Radical
  3. Provocative
  4. Strategic
  5. Media
  6. Industrial
  7. Collaborative
  8. Technological
  9. Environmental
  10. Gamified

The major deck will be visualised through greek gods.


The Medium deck will hold 20 cards that look at the spirit of the designer. These will be represented by animals. These are

  1. Cooperative
  2. Clear messages
  3. Individual expression
  4. Wisdom
  5. Intrusion
  6. Peaceful
  7. Strength
  8. Duality and balance
  9. Ambition and dominance
  10. Stubborn
  11. Opportunity
  12. Untruth
  13. Industrious
  14. Cunning
  15. Rejuvenation
  16. Long standing relationships
  17. Spiritually confirming
  18. Melodious (global) language
  19. Inquisitive
  20. Messenger

The final deck is the Minors, this looks at elements of design and will also hold 20 cards.

  1. Dynamic
  2. Simplistic
  3. Engaging
  4. Efficient
  5. Global
  6. Fun
  7. Connecting
  8. Joyous
  9. Provoking
  10. Endearing
  11. Clarity
  12. Impermanence
  13. Organic
  14. Futuristic
  15. Sustainable
  16. Beauty
  17. Versatile
  18. Powerful
  19. Reliable
  20. Truthful.

The minor cards will be represented by symbols.

In total there will be 50 cards in the deck, with 3 individual decks to provide multiple meanings to the person doing the ‘reading’, within this the cards take on additional meaning when deepening on if they face the reader or not. Facing away can imply that this is not applicable to you and could or should be, or it could mean that it is a negative aspect in your current design practice. Each reading is interpreted differently and dependant on the individual.
