The Mindshake Design Thinking Cards, which look similar to playing cards, consist of 78 cards which form a toolkit and which direct a creative process based on the Evolution 6² model. 36 cards represent the 36 techniques which make up the Evolution 6² model, 36 are photos which are examples of each of the techniques, and the rest explain the use of the card set.
Carefully arranged, or randomly shuffled, as a source of information, and learning technique of DT methods.
Fixed to the wall to help the creative process and the execution of innovation tasks, indicated by the E6 phases.
