This deck of cards was designed by me to introduce designers and design students to critical theory and to help them reflect on their design process.

Each card introduces theory under that letter. Then the cards introduce a question or comment to help make a connection to the theory and design practice.

The deck is by no means a complete critical alphabet, but rather an introduction to concepts that a designer can reflect on while working. The deck should also be considered an invitation to create your own list of important critical theory concepts.

If there’s a new concept you’d like to see in the alphabet or you’d like to give feedback or make suggestion, please reach out via Etsy, LinkedIn, Twitter - @mamaazure or Instagram- @lesleyannnoel!

The cards measure 2.56" x 2.56".

We are shipping as quickly as possible, but every now and again the pandemic unexpectedly slows things down!

Tried them out with our design team and went so well we’re doing it every week. Our activity this first time was to think about the role of public safety in design projects thru the lens of 3 cards. Did it on zoom and worked well. Looking forward to doing it in person.

Love this tool and the critical lenses it adds to design processes and conversations. I bought one for me and one for a design friend, who loved that this was a quick beta. Highly recommend for folks doing design in workplaces, social ventures, government, academia...... :)

What a beautiful and informative set of cards. They will be front and center in my office when I finally get back there. Meanwhile I almost feel guilty just having them to myself.

High quality printing and comes with a great plastic case! I love these cards, they cover so much ground—a brilliant companion for anyone who thinks critically and/or does creative work.
