Oblique Strategies

Back in 1975, legendary music producer Brian Eno worked with painter Peter Schmidt to produce a pack of cards that would help artists break through their creative blocks.

Titled ‘Oblique Strategies’ the cards had sayings and catchphrases to encourage lateral thinking, and help artists get out of creative dead-lock situations. They were famously used during David Bowie’s three Berlin albums.

So if you’re stuck trying to write an epic chorus, or struggling to get that blog post written, you can try them out here - someone has kindly created an online generator of the cards: http://www.oblicard.com/
