Learn the Principles of Design While Playing Poker

Canadian-based graphic designer Ben Barrett-Forrest has created a how-to guide to graphic design in a much more fun format than a textbook. The Design Deck lets you learn about graphic design while playing poker, euchre or any other card game you prefer.


His colorful deck comes enhanced with lessons on each card. Topics include graphic design techniques and best practices, terminology, quotes from famous designers, principles of typography, and the history of graphic design.


The deck was created for designers and non-designers. Whether studying or just taking an interest in the topic, all will certainly learn a thing or two on these casino-quality playing cards.

You can watch the designer’s charismatic video on the deck or visit his (funded) Kickstarter page for more information.
