CREATIVITY CARDS: BRAINSTORMING MADE EASY
Businesses need to innovate. But innovation starts by having ideas worth developing. And sparking those ideas requires creative thinking strategies.
That’s where Creativity Cards: Brainstorming Made Easy™ comes in. They're designed to simplify the process of generating profitable ideas in your business as a creative, collaborative team.
They provide a framework so that “thinking outside the box” isn’t just an abstract concept but a transferable skill. The more you use them, the more they train your brain to think differently and see problems as opportunities to innovate.
It’s the brain game that develops your creative problem solving skills so you can generate the kind of outside-the-box ideas that drive innovation, and actually have fun doing it.
• Provides A Framework for Innovation
• Teaches Creative Problem Solving Strategies
• Gamifies the Process of Generating New Ideas
• Is A Fun, Interactive Team Building Experience
HOW TO USE CREATIVITY CARDS
1. Form a team of 3-6 people
2. Define an objective (a problem to solve, area to improve, or wish to fulfill)
3. Set a time limit (30-60 mins to start)
4. Withhold judgement (criticism kills creativity)
5. Listen to each other (ideas can come from anywhere)
6. Write down all the ideas as they're discussed
7. Select the best ideas at the end of the session
8. Implement your top 1-3 ideas
There are 6 categories which flow sequentially through the ideation process.
The GAMEPLAY cards establish the rules, categories, and resources.
The FOCUS cards get you unstuck and engaged in the process of thinking differently.
The PERSPECTIVE cards help you look at the problem from a variety of viewpoints.
The TRANSFORM cards follow the SCAMPER method of creativity. It's an acronym for the following set of lateral thinking techniques: Substitute, Combine, Adapt, Modify / Magnify / Minimize, Put to another use , Eliminate, and Reverse / Rearrange
The QUESTION cards are designed to get you to think more deeply about the ideas you've generated in the previous steps.
The EVALUATE cards provide a variety of methods for ranking your results so you can determine which ideas should be discarded and which should be implemented.
THE CARD DESIGN
The backs of the cards feature the lighbulb logo with interconnected gears, symbolizing the collaborative effort that goes into powering that light with ideas.
The fronts of the cards are kept deliberately simple, white text on a black background, so as not to influence or distract from the idea generation process.
Each category has it's own identifying color at the top or bottom for easy identification.
The tuck box features the back of card design on one side and a description of the game on the back. As an added bonus, purchasers are invited to text the word CARDS to a 5 digit number so they can recieve free bonuses, like training videos and updates.
Creativity Cards: Brainstorming Made Easy™ is the brainchild of Joshua Seth, a leading keynote speaker on the topic of creativity and innovative thinking. They’re designed to simplify the process of generating profitable ideas in your business as a creative, collaborative team.
He developed his unique approach to creative innovation on the sound stages of Hollywood as a celebrity voice actor (Digimon, Akira, Spongebob) and while touring the world as psychological illusionist.
Joshua is also the author of the best-selling book, Finding Focus In A Changing World: How To Make The Impossible Possible By Thinking Differently, which is the basis for his popular keynote speeches on creative innovation, collaboration, and the mind.
Risks and challenges
I'm running this Kickstarter as an experiment to see if the idea is viable in the marketpplace. When this project is fully funded it will confirm that and you will have played an important part in demystifying the process of creativity and innovation in business. But to make this campaign a success, I'll need your help and support.
I've spent many long hours developiing this system and it's been a labor of love from start to finish. I look look forward to shipping these decks to every backer in a timely manner just as soon as they're back from the printer.
Should any unforeseen challenges arise, I will communicate them to the backers of this project. Thank you for your confidence and support!
And by the way, this is an "all or nothing" Kickstarter, so if it's not fully funded then the project gets cancelled and you won't have to pay.
