Designers looking for ways to overcome creative impasses are going to love Duncan McKean's Iterations cards. McKean's creative deck of cards are designed to inspire creatives to continue their work when the juices stop flowing and the mind grinds to a halt.

The Iterations cards do this in a simple and fun way. Each of the Iterations cards has a word on it accompanied by instructions. The designer is to create their sketch based upon the instructions of the card. Sample instructions include the "Echo" card that instructs a stopped-up designer to start their sketch by mimicking a design classic. Designers have recently begun creating cards decks to help people make all manner of decisions. It's refreshing to see a deck of cards designed to help the designers themselves.
