Dashwood Playing Cards

September 1, 2011 | 5 Comments

Designed by Dashwood | Country: New Zealand

A deck of cards inspired by Dashwood’s passion for typography. Each card featuring a letterform and copy briefly discussing an aspect of the particular typeface. Not just the usual who, what and when, but interesting usage and opinion.

The face cards were all illustrated by Dashwood with each character being based on one of their team, including Hamish Meikle, Creative Director and Andrew Gair, Managing Director being the two ‘jokers’.

Cards were sent to all of Dashwood’s clients and suppliers as a Christmas gift. Following the Dashwood tradition of ‘useful holiday gifts’, playing cards were the perfect item for a Kiwi summer holiday.
