A Beautiful Deck Of Typographic Playing Cards For Design Lovers
By Dorothy Tan, 02 Jul 2013
Here is a treat for the design and typography lovers—Vancouver-based English designer Chris Cavill has created ‘Type Deck’, a gorgeous set of playing cards that are “presented through typography”.
In place of the usual suit symbols and numbers found on regular playing cards, Type Deck features eye-pleasing typography that spells out the cards’ suits and values instead of expressing them graphically.
The project is now crowd-sourcing on Kickstarter—if it hits a 200% stretch goal, Cavill will enhance the already lovely tuck case the deck comes in with gold, gray and white foils.
The designers will also be releasing T-shirt designs of the most popular cards each week—you can vote for your favorite cards to be turned into shirts over here.
See below for mock-up images of Type Deck.
