    Ideas

    When I first used this deck of cards I had to rush to my computer to start listing all the ideas that popped up in my mind almost involuntarily. I can see this as an excellent tool for designers, product managers and entrepreneurs as invaluable. If one is a fine artist looking for a sublime idea this may not be ticket.
