The story of how I developed the ideas that led to the creation of Constraints Cards - the card deck for web designers. I think constraints get a bad rep. In this talk I hope to persuade you that not only should you identify the inherent constraints in your project - you should consider adding voluntary constraints to help achieve a more creative solution, to help improve your teams learning speed, and to keep life fun. I'll also discuss ways in which using Constraints as an individual, in any role, can level up your design thinking more quickly.
This isn't a Theory of Constraints talk. This is an investigation into how creativity in the broadest sense benefits from the application of even the most arbitrary of constraints.
