Bēhance: Philosopher Typographic Playing Cards by Gabrielle Manotoc

These Philosopher Typographic playing cards were designed by the American artist Gabrielle Manotoc for her Typography I class. She was tasked to pick a typeface and using only those specific letterforms, create designs for a deck of playing cards. Gabrielle chose to use the typeface Philosopher. So she named each suit after a famous philosopher. © 2013 Gabrielle Manotoc

Typographic Playing Cards: Deck # 2 by P22 Type Foundry

P22 Type Foundry creates computer typefaces inspired by art and history and is renowned for its work with museums and foundations to ensure the development of accurate historical typefaces that are fully relevant for today’s computer user.

This is the second typographic deck by P22 Type Foundry. The company held a contest in 2008 to collect different designs from different artists for this deck. A panel of well-respected typophiles chose one card for each of the 52 cards and jokers. The artists had to meet the following main requirements:

  • They had to consider proper characteristics (One Eye Jack, Suicide King, etc) for specific cards;
  • They had to pick a P22 font or font set (licensed) that they have a certain fondness for;
  • Design had to be sensitive to the font chosen and highlight its best features;
  • All number cards and aces should use only Red and Black (grey);
  • All cards should have different fonts involved (in spite of that the Costructivist font used twice).

The deck: 52 playing cards + 3 different Jokers + information card + P22’s card-licence. Poker size. Playing cards are printed on casino cardboard with a glossy finish.

Bēhance: Caslon Pro Playing Cards by Sara Wasserboehr

This project consists of the creation of a typographic playing cards based on a typeface given to the student by lottery. The student selects the theme, motif and approach to create an attractive design made of type ONLY. They are not allowed to use shapes, illustrations or any other element that is not typographic.

These are typographic playing cards based on the TV series “Supernatrual”. Sara (US) wanted her cards to feel creepy with religious undertones. Each suit’s colours were chosen based on the four categories of creatures that are featured in Supernatural: monsters (green and red), demons (red and purple), spirits (purple and blue), and angels (blue and gold). Typeface: Caslon Pro.

Supernatural is an American supernatural drama television series created by Eric Kripke (first broadcast on September 13, 2005). The series follows two brothers as they hunt demons, ghosts, monsters and other figures of the supernatural. It is produced by Warner Bros. Television (in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision).

Kickstarter: The Type Deck by Chris Cavill

COMPLAINS ABOUT FULFILMENT

This deck designed by Chris Cavill to bring something different to the table. It can be the first deck in Typographic category which will be printed by USPCC in case of its successful funding on Kickstarter. Typographic decks in many cases are playing cards with pictures on them composed of letters and numbers of a specific font. These playing cards slightly differentiate this approach as they have letters combined in names of cards as artworks. Different fonts are used. Chris invented a nice idea for his court cards to keep them fitting the theme. I think it is still can be classified as a typographic deck.
