Prompts encourage designers and tech startups to consider the potential repercussions of their products and create more responsibly

Design firm Artefact created the Tarot Cards of Tech as a way to motivate conversations around equity, access and usage of products around the word. The cards come in the form of a deck and an interactive website to help spark more comprehensive thinking about the impact of technology and design, both positive and negative.

Essentially, they are prompts for companies to create products more responsibly. The cards ask questions like, “What’s the worst headline about your product you can imagine?” and “Who or what disappears if your product is successful?” to encourage designers to think through the effects a product could have on people. The exercise follows principles of human-centered design and inclusivity that have appeared across disciplines, from software to automotive and fashion.
