Type+Color Playing Cards
Type+Color is a set of playing card decks utilizing different color schemes with different type styles.
Type+Color is a set of decks utilizing different color schemes as the primary identifiers of each suit - rendered in the different typeface styles - the BOLD SANS deck uses Helvetica Bold and the ITALIC SERIF deck uses Georgia Italic. Pips are placed in the corner of each card, bleeding off the live area.
This deck is in many ways a relaunch of a deck I tried to run in 2015 called "Farbschemata," which was a redesign of a deck I created in 2013 called simply "Helvetica." Third time is a charm, right?
- Fresh out of the gate, these will be printed by MPC using their linen finish.
- It's an ambitious goal, but if by some miracle we hit $14000, I will print these with Legends Playing Cards, using their "standard" finish.
Risks and challenges
I just hope enough people like the design. These are not for traditional card people. But if you like color, space, and typography, these will bring you mega uber happiness.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
