Sinapsi Compositive is an online app that combines the world of fashion with playing cards.  Creator Roberto Zanon originally formed the idea in 2007 after discovering Oblique Strategies by Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt.  The app was created in early 2016 & developed by Giovanni Teano.  Each card is designed as a hypothetical creative block for both fashion designers and product designers.  However, they can be used by other designers as well.

“The drawing that accompanies each card and object-related representation contributes, by activating perceptive and formal associations, to enriching the intricate grid of meanings and references, making the "reading" different or always open to new interpretations.
Each subject is given a quote from authors who are gravitating around the project world. The association between quotation and object is sometimes direct, sometimes evocative and in some cases labile; however, it manages to be a bridge for further and personal interpretative stimuli.”
