Bēhance: Typographic Playing Cards by Ashlyn Hicks

These typographic playing cards were designed by an American artist, Ashlyn Hicks. The typeface isn’t specified. These playing cards have interesting faces, but without suits they are also too innovative – read unpractical. The faces of suits are the same. Playing cards weren’t produced.

Typographic Playing Cards: Hat-Trick Deck

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.

Bēhance: Typographic Playing Cards by Michael Lemma

These Optima Typographic playing cards were designed by the American artist Michael Lemma as a project for college. He was assigned Optima type face and had to make playing cards out of the type face. The way he got his shapes and unique look for the face cards was a “happy accident”. Michael hit the align tool in illustrator and got these unique looking shapes. So he played around with different letters & numbers to create an interesting look. The artist decided that red and black colours fit this deck the best.

Michael printed them on cardboard and cut them by himself. But he is going to print them on casino cardboard.
