Cards Against Humanity Just Got a Design-y Makeover
There’s no denying that the simplicity of Cards Against Humanity‘s monochromatic look is a huge part of what makes the card game so recognizable. Black cards for questions, white cards for answers — easy as pie. But as much as we love those distinguishable hues, as color fanatics, we’ve often wondered what the cards would look like in some bright and colorful patterns. And if you too have had the same train of thought before, your chance to find out is finally here.
The hilarious folks behind Cards Against Humanity recently introduced The Design Pack, which features 30 fully illustrated cards created by 30 famous designers. If you do the simple math, that comes down to a card per person, guaranteeing a unique illustration on each and every one. And while this pack only includes colorful versions of the traditionally “white” cards, it’ll still liven up your hand and give you some pretty cards to choose from.
If you’re not already psyched about this new pack (why aren’t you?!), here are two more reasons you should be: Milton Glaser and Susan Kare. Glaser is the graphic designer we all aspire to be. He’s responsible for creating the iconic “I Love New York” logo, designing the lively poster for the final season of Mad Men and even co-founding New York Magazine back in 1968.
We’re also geeking out about the amazing Kare, who began her career at Apple as the screen graphics and digital font designer for the original Macintosh computer. With 28 other fabulous designers joining these two legends to create the pack, these are going to be some seriously Instagram-worthy cards.
For just $10, these vibrant masterpieces can be yours. And as if it couldn’t get any better, all the profits go to the Chicago Design Museum, a community-supported gallery celebrating contemporary design. Art and altruism from a company that prides itself on its offensiveness? Sounds good to us.
