Description

Nature Cards are a collection of cards featuring strategies from the natural world that inspire us with a new mindset as we approach design challenges.

They can be used to frame your design challenge, evolve your business strategy, brainstorm, teach, or simply to think creatively and holistically with nature in mind. The cards might ask you to consider the dynamic structures, emergent networks, or ecological succession present in nature, and applies such concepts to your own organisational thinking.

The cards are freely available as a download from IDEO, a global design company committed to creating positive impact.
