Design resources



The DMINR cards are a collection of cards with journalistic concepts and design provocations around AI technologies. We paired these cards with design thinking techniques to generate ideas around journalism, its challenges and possible solutions. You can use the cards for this purpose or extend them to fit your own design explorations.

We created two decks of cards to inspire ideas around journalistic practices and AI technologies.

Click here to download the cards in PDF format.

  • Deck one with 21 cards grouped in two categories:
    • Workflow: 12 blue cards (P1-12) with activities that journalists commonly perform on their everyday work.
    • Sources of input: 9 orange cards (D1-9) with a number of popular sources of input used by journalists.
  • Deck two with 14 cards with opportunities and challenges of AI technologies in the context of journalism.
