Correspondence cards for Ploughshares Fund showing nuclear hardware as dated.
Ploughshares Fund 2011 "Hardware" Cards
Showing nuclear weapons as a thing of the past.
Ploughshares Fund needed a set of cards with a serious tone for communications with Washington policymakers and donors interested in the more technical aspects of the mission - elimination of nuclear weapons. Unlike the "soft" set, these cards address nuclear weapons head on.

Each card uses a back and white image of a piece of nuclear hardware with the text "Make nuclear weapons a thing of the past." To accentuate the theme, the cards use Ploughshares Fund's darker color pallet in gray and yellow.
