Type Trumps is a card game by Rick Banks [Face37]. It’s a variation of the renown Top Trumps game [Dubreq; Waddingtons; Winning Moves] and involves comparing various typeface attributes such as ‘Legibility’, ‘Weights’ and the discursive ‘Special Power’.

It's an ideal Creative & Digital under-graduate project: it introduces general graphic design principles; develops specific typographic skills; and requires a number of ‘design for print’ techniques.

FdA Web Design’s 2014/16 cohort – the #honeybadgers – chose Pantone 325C as their signature colour and were the first group to get full packs professionally printed … although there may only be 3 or 4 of them in existence! The designers of these samples were:

Maven Pro Bold Type Trumps 8 Card
Shuriken Boy Type Trumps 8 Card
Mostra Nuova Type Trumps 8 Card
FF Dax Type Trumps 8 Card
Poplar Type Trumps 8 Card
