Our latest project on kickstarter is a Typographic deck of playing cards designed to ensure every single card is completely unique and its own piece of art. The fundimental concept behind the work is that we all have a card within the playing card deck assigned to us based on the day we were born. The traditional court card faces that we all know so well come to life as typographic portraits. The meticulous process of building each word to form the faces delivers an almost life-like and tangible appearance without the use of shading.
We wanted the non-court cards within the Black Book to be just as important and design focused as the court cards therefore we treated each card as its own piece of artwork that can stand on its own.
