We are students and faculties in the Graduate School of Design at National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, dedicated to exploring how cardgames can be used to design interaction. Borrowing from the wisdom of Tarot card deck, we frame interaction design into 22 issues and 56 design methods. By mapping the images of four elements, earth, water, fire, and air to four aspects of design, form, expression, function, and concept, respectively, 14 methods for each aspects are developed to make the arranngement of design procedures tangible as well as to facilitate educating interaction design methods. Furthermore, the images of 22 major arcana in Tarot are used to frame the interaction design issues mostly uptodate.
To facilitate designers and to verify our deck, we actively hold workshops and welcome all kinds of feedback. We share our card deck for free download on the toolkit page. It is our pleasure to know your comments of using it. The blog with Chinese posts is regularly updated to introduce cardgames-in-design all over the world to audiences who read Chinese only.
