CONSTRAINTS
as

ENABLERS
THIS IS NOT A NEW
IDEA!
“...I was learning to let go; let go of
outcomes, let go of failures, let go
of imperfections. In return I found a
process of creating art that was
perpetual, and unencumbered by
creating results.”

Phil Hansen

“Constraints is a card deck for web designers and
developers to improve practice, structure hack
days, and help you level up.”
“For practice to work it needs to be challenging.
Not so challenging that you freak out and hate
your brain, but not so easy that you coast,
allowing your brain to fall asleep. You need to be
in control but pushed a little, ideally in a new
direction for your brain to pay attention and
grow.”

Steve milne

constraints.co
“One of the most important mantras for me has
been “Start Small. Keep Building.” When I set out
on this project, I knew I wanted to learn to code
dynamic interactive websites, but I also knew next
to nothing about coding. Rather than try to tackle
the enormous task of building a complex, fully
functional social network, I took a small first step.”

JENNIFER DeWALT

“Tackling small goals gave me small, solvable
problems which led to new small goals and more
small, solvable problems. Eventually, after I solved
enough small problems my conception of a small
problem changed.”
