The Avant Card deck is an attempt to shed light on significant designers from several movements spanning the twentieth century in an accessible and informative manner. This particular deck focuses on modernism and Avant-Garde design. The face cards of each suit highlight key designers associated with a movement or group, showcasing lesser-known but nonetheless influential individuals alongside their more famous peers. The suit icons, typography, and motifs pay homage to the design trends of the modernist movement and its associated artwork. Produced in collaboration with Kyle Anderson, as part of their History of Modern Architecture course at Auburn University, the cards were an opportunity for both designers to explore their interest in graphic design.
