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: 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.

Bēhance: Royalty Typographic Playing Cards by Chris Finn

Royalty Typographic playing cards are designed by Chris Finn. The main challenge of this project was to create a visual system that provides consistency through the whole set of cards. They are a consistent and solid group because they share visual features that unite them. The theme of the deck based on the design of the typeface (Centaur) is “Royalty”. Chris chose the colors Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire and Gold to represent the jewels and metals commonly found around royalty.

Typographic Playing Cards: Mathematical Playing Cards by Wolfram Research, Inc.

These playing cards are unusual and even unique. I classified them as “typographic” but it is a conditional classification. As a rule typographic playing cards mean playing cards with pictures on them composed of letters and numbers of a specific font (Arial, Verdana, Times New Roman, etc.). These playing cards are not concentrated on letters and a specific font. They are focused on mathematics and numbers.
