Here is a nice use of flash cards as a way of providing user documentation. In this case, it’s the legal rights of New York tenants:
Designer and artist Candy Change collaborated with non-profit group “Tenants & Neighbors” to develop and produce a boxed set of 30 flash cards on tenants’ rights. The flash cards translate New York’s official Tenants’ Rights Guide into an accessible format that covers everything from security deposits and sub-letting to privacy and eviction.
Traditionally, these type of documents have looked great but taken a lot of time and effort to produce. However, with more and more technical documentation content stored as re-usable chunks of information in XML-based Content Management Systems, it’s a lot easier to do . You simply re-publish your content, a topic on each page, as playing card size pages and send that off to your printer.
