Prototype: Cards

Some of my inspirations have been card decks of varying kinds – I’ve shared aircraft identification cards and Wildlife Treasure – and I wanted to share an early profile of what a card might look like (prototype above).

The design challenge is figuring out what information is germane for a card versus a printed pamphlet versus a website. Not only is form factor and brevity a consideration, but thinking of what someone might want to do with the different form factors is also important.

I can imagine a world where the cards are useful/fun as flash cards, small enough to bring along a city walk. Where the printed pamphlet acts as a more of a reference book, and the website the complete storehouse.
