Promotional playing cards for freelance designer & illustrator, Ryan Hewlett

This deck of cards is a look at four specific moments in the history of art & design as it has wrestled to incorporate machine technology (or push against it). Each suit in the deck focuses on one of these four moments — the new typography of the Bauhaus era, mid-century book cover design, the late 20th century silk-screened poster aesthetic, and contemporary art & design in the age of mobile.
