MapCI Cards (Mapping Complex Information Cards) are a collection of 40 questions that can help designers gather, analyze, and organize content when designing information to develop diagrams, visual explanations, information graphics, and instructions. The Cards help support the conceptual part of the information design process. Working with MapCI cards can help you strengthen your information management skills, reduce the risk of poor understanding, and consider more alternatives.

This tool offers a flexible and engaging approach responding to information designers’ needs. The card format and size provide easy portability, and a change from the digital environment in which you are probably immersed. You can use MapCI Cards in many ways according to your working habits, and you can customize the deck adding your own questions!

What MapCI Cards users are saying

“I can’t tell you enough how influential your Information Design concepts have been for our organization. We have made great strides, particularly in recognizing Conceptual Design as its own tradecraft and getting our first positions established dedicated to that function above all else. We are seeing a radical improvement and even some real transformation in our products and product lines.”
