Karten Spielen

This deck of playing cards was designed for a class project. The assignment was to make playing cards based on a certain art style. Being a young designer who had completed a Graphic Design History class I was of course obsessed with Bauhaus. I set out to create cards that borrowed from the principals of Bauhausian design as well as paying homage to the classic Bicycle card designs. Minimalist design, strict adherence to a grid, and a Bauhaus inspired font used in all lowercase make this deck a faithful tribute to the school, complete with a cheeky use of German on the box.
