Once in a while I check Ludovic’s work, which I am a big fan.
I am surprised that nobody (me included) in TSA posted him before, shame on us!
Had this little gem sitting in our inbox for a few days, which I’m just now uncovering. Jim Sutherland, from Hat-trick Design, has designed a set of typographic playing cards. It was a personal project with the basic guidelines being: design a full set of playing cards (52 + jokers and a cover) using no repeated typefaces and no alteration of typefaces – which, in his words, “made it hard but very rewarding. It was like solving 54 micro design problems.”
All 54 cards fit conveniently on a B1 sheet of paper, therefore making it ideal for printing a poster (shown above – top). If you are interested in getting your hands on either the cards or the poster you can reach them at allison [at] hat-trickdesign.co.uk.
Great article from idsgn which discusses the past, present, and hopeful future of typography on the web.
