IDEO Method Cards are a tool to showcase methods we use to inspire great design and keep people at the center of our design process. Each of the 51 cards describes one method and includes a brief story about how and when to use it.

It's not a "how to" guide—it's a design tool meant to explore new approaches and help you develop your own. Use the deck to gain a new perspective, inspire a team, turn a corner, or try a new approach.

Created in response to requests from clients, colleagues, students, and teachers, IDEO Method Cards are intended as inspiration for practicing and aspiring designers, as well as those seeking a creative spark in their work.

I use the Method Cards mainly as tools for process design. They are great for groups who are working on solving a particular 'How do we get from here to there?' kind of problem.
Craig Pelkey Landes, Fast Company
