The compass of a world called Intuition- A synthesis of Design, Tarot and Gestalt Psychology. Created byMatteo di PascaleIntùiti- Nisha Designs

Intùiti is a pack of 78 cards that really helps you dive into your deepest creative process.

It was born as a project of the Polytechnic University of Milan and it represents a new way of living the subject of creativity, an issue that is often superficially tackled. Instead of forcing the user to find an idea, as it happens with some techniques like brainstorming or the mind map, Intùiti invites to sit calmly and to feel what one has to give, remembering that creating must be a source of joy and satisfaction. 

Intùiti proposes pointed suggestions, obtained from the analysis of classic tarots, that are a rich collection of archetypes. It has no divination purpose: each card is related to a thinking model that belongs to our culture, a powerful incentive that can put in motion creative and inspirational processes.

Intùiti is a synthesis of Design, Tarots, Numerology and Gestalt Psychology. It is both a serious game and a powerful tool that brings out the brightest side of creativity without employing rigid schemes.

Visual incentives and Tales

In the pack you will find two series of pictures: the primary intùitiand the secondary intùiti. The first ones are extensive inspirations; the second ones are more specific. To each picture corresponds an evocative tale that intensifies its sensation.

Each card represents a powerful incentive and is designed using Gestalt principles so you can recognize emotionally the related archetype.

You can play as you see fit. There are no main rules. It’s a tool for creative thinking based on visual and imaginary associations, so you just have to shuffle the deck, pick a card, and “let it speak”.

Give it a look: these cards are truly gorgeous!

Backstage

It took over one year of study and development and then other 6 months for enhancement. All the drawings are handmade and later digitalized for the industrial production.

Intùiti is not an answer!

People often want to find the solution to their “creative problems” in a tool or in method; they would like to have an equation, an algorithm able to solve the real issue of Creativity: to create something new. But using a “recipe” for writing a novel means to have produced something, not to have invented something.

It’s important to reiterate: Intùiti is not an algorithmic function that can “make people creative”, or a scientific method able to produce thousands of brilliant ideas. It’s an inspirational tool: it’s not an answer, but a continuos question.

The Wedding

Wedding: A brides dream. A bond between two hearts. A promise to cherish, respect, understand eachother in the ebb and flow of life. A new beginning filled with love, laughter and happiness. I love the colors and the excitement it brings as it should to a celebration.

Be Yourself

Be Yourself: No matter what we do, where we at we must learn to own who we are. I wanted to do something inspiring with words for a 12 year old beautiful, witty, innocent and a charming young girl. Guardian of Gaia, lover of animals, nature. This painting will give her hope, strength to not give up and will always pull her back to who she is inside when she finds herself lost in the ebb and flow of life. I loved painting her style, her imagination and her thought process.
