Design Taxi: Ultra-Minimalist Playing Cards That Are Almost Blank
May 13, 2015
Our Minim Cards by Joe Doucet were featured on Design Taxi in a post titled "Ultra-Minimalist Playing Cards That Are Almost Blank" by Dorothy Tan.
"Multi-disciplinary design studio Joe Doucet x Partners has created an unconventional deck of regulation playing cards that is devoid of the usual illustrations or artworks. Named ‘MINIM’, these ultra-minimalist playing cards are almost blank, featuring just simple geometric symbols that represent the hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades at two corners—the back of the card is marked with a simple diagonal line. According to its creators, this deck is the result of an experiment that plays with “the idea of how much you can take away while still maintaining a playable deck”.
