Playing Cards Double As A Comprehensive Graphic Design Manual

Playing Cards Double As A Comprehensive Graphic Design Manual

Each card of The Design Deck has a piece of useful information about graphic design.

Leah Gonzalez

The Design Deck, created by designer Ben Barrett-Forrest of Forrest Media, is a deck of playing cards that is also a full graphic design manual.

Each of the 52 faces of the deck has a piece of useful information about graphic design and includes a visual example. The deck includes notes on design principles and concepts, design strategies and terminology, helpful quotes from influential designers, info about typography, history of design movements, and more.

The deck will be printed in full color and on a casino-quality cardstock.

The Design Deck is currently on Kickstarter and has already raised more than its target and reached its stretch goal. The deck is being printed by renowned card-maker Bicycle. Backers can purchase their own deck for as low as $18 and expect them to ship around July.
