Typographic Playing Cards: Hat-Trick Deck

13 Aug

These nice Hat-Trick typographic playing cards were designed by Jim Sutherland from Hat-Trick design (UK). Jim made 50 copies of the deck for friends and colleagues (first edition). This is the second limited edition – 1000 copies were produced.

The deck: 52 different playing cards + 2 different Jokers + 1 information card (sketches) + 1 ad card. Bridge size. Playing cards printed on solid cardboard and have a smooth finish (plastic coated). This deck has very interesting plastic coating. It is the same for cards and the box. You can find such coating on covers of some modern books. It makes cards quite stiff. Playing cards are pleasant by touch.

These are classic typographic playing cards with pictures on them composed of letters and numbers of a specific font (in case of this deck different for each card). First sketches Jim made in 2007. Numbers are used for number cards and letters are used for court cards. All cards are different.

Jim brought typographic elements even to the back design. Rows of letters (from “A” in the centre to “K” at the edges of cards) and numbers form rectangles of different size.
