An accordion-format laminated card can be distributed for instant participation in a OpenIDEO Design Challenge.

The laminated card can be used with an erasable marker and the results scanned to the OpenIDEO website. Wipe off for reuse.

An unlaminated paper version (or a Moleskine Japanese Album) can be produced for single use and localized printing (cards could be snail-mailed back).

The card incorporates the OpenIDEO design process and makes it accessible offline. Translations can be made for any language.

OpenIDEO Design Challenge cards can used at OI workshops in schools and conferences. They can also be placed in strategic locations at train stations, bus stops and airports.
