Following the Dashwood tradition of ‘useful holiday gifts’, in collaboration with my Creative Director, I designed and illustrated a deck of cards inspired by Dashwood’s passion for typography.
Each card features 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.
I illustrated all of the face cards, with each character being based on individuals at Dashwood, 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.
