Capture and analyse design ideas

Cardographer is a digital platform that enables you to capture your physical card-based design ideas and analyse trends, issues and opportunities.

When to use?

Cardographer is a supplement to the VisitorBox Ideation Cards. The cards help you generate new ideas for digital experiences. Use Cardographer to capture and analyse these ideas.

How does it work?

Download the Cardographer scanner app and follow the instructions. After the session, you can analyse the outcome or simply use it to remember your thoughts and get new members of staff up to speed.

Why use Cardographer?

Cardographer allows you to save your ideas and visualise long-term usage within your institution and among all users. Such insights can help you find strategic gaps and identify untapped opportunities.

Being able to compare my design to all the others at a glance let me quickly see that my idea was using some uncommon approaches.

It’s a fantastic resource – I can quickly spot gaps in the market and make something that no one has thought of before, or pick a tried and tested design!

What are the technical requirements?

Cardographer is primarily a web platform, which can run in any browser. The Cardographer scanner app can run on Android and soon on iOS devices. Due to the use of Augmented Reality technology for the card scanning, a device equivalent to a Galaxy S7 or better is required. This is equivalent to an iPhone 8 or higher.

Can the tool work with other decks?

While Cardographer was designed with the VisitorBox Ideation Card deck in mind, it can be customised to support any card deck.

How will the tool be supported?

Cardographer is an ongoing project which is currently evolving and forming the basis of several partnerships in industry and academia. With a dedicated team and ongoing funding, Cardographer is set to grow in functionality and maintain support for the foreseeable future.
