The saying “if you need to ‘see’ something, look at something else” really holds true when it comes to design inspiration. Dan Lockton is now offering a new version of his free design kit ‘Design with Intent’. The kit includes “101 Patterns for Influencing Behaviour Through Design”, a set of 101 cards, “each illustrating a particular ‘gambit‘ for influencing people’s interactions with products, services, environments, and each other, via the design of systems.” They’re grouped into 8 easy to work with disciplines like ‘architecture’ with examples on what will bring about a behavioral change through design. You can download a corresponding worksheet with each card. Beautifully done!
