Grid Playing Cards is a three-part collection based on the design principles of the International Typographic Style, otherwise known as the 'Swiss Style' of graphic design. Its main principles are readability and cleanliness, with most creations adopting an asymmetric layout, always based on the use of a grid. These grids, usually made up of hidden columns and rows, are used to align words, numbers, pictures, and patterns, so each series in the Grid Collection adopts these principles.
With Grid Series Two, as well as vertical and horizontal alignment like in Grid Series One, the circle creates a dial effect and explores how different grids can be used on playing cards.
Doing away with traditional pips and instead adopting a typographic format, each card acts like a miniature poster, with bold lettering setting the theme, rather than illustration and numbers. The design is minimal but functional, the cards can be read and viewed in many different ways, and sport a full bleed design.
