IOTA is a deck of regulation playing cards by Joe Doucet that dallies with the idea: how much you can take away while still maintaining a playable deck?


Simple geometric symbols are reductive versions of hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades. While it’s necessary to mark the back of regulation playing cards, Joe’s done so with a minimal diagonal line instead of the overly ornamental versions used at your granny’s bridge club. LOVE. So. Much.


Joe Doucet will be debuting IOTA among other projects during his Play exhibition at Wanted Design in New York, May 17-20, 2013.
