    Playing cards concept based on a typographic approach. Done as a school project.

The deck of 52 French playing cards is the most common deck used today. It includes thirteen ranks of each of the four French suits, clubs (♣), diamonds (♦), hearts (♥) and spades (♠), with reversible "court" or face cards. Some designs have done away with reversible face cards, but I kept them anyway. Unlike classic decks, where the numeral ones get an appropriate number of dots and the flashy illustrations are reserved for the higher ranking cards, I designed numbers and letters as illustrations for each card based on it's suiite. Each suite get's it's own visual style based on the geometry of the suite's icon. For a more in-depth look, see below..
