Constraints is a deck of cards to improve the way you tackle web design problems. If you are involved in creating websites as a designer, coder, producer, content strategist, creative director or conference hound – you need Constraints.
Each card asks you to do something, to consider something, or to avoid something. Sometimes it’s very direct, sometimes it’s more ambiguous. In all cases the objective is to shift your perspective on your problem. Shifting your perspective is often all that is required to see the better solution.
All of the cards are aimed squarely at challenging the way you work, pushing you to find new, often better techniques and ways of thinking about design problems. Sometimes by taking something away, by adding something new, sometimes simply by making you focus on one specific area.
This kind of practice will have a direct impact on how you think, design and build.
Everybody needs practice in their fields and these cards seem like a great way for web developers and designers to keep their skills up to par. Take up a challenge and see what you can do under a few Constraints.
