  2. Metrodeck
Discarded tickets become playing cards
Printed on found and repurposed New York City subway fare cards, metrodeck attempts to visually capture the common thread between commuters, public transportation, and chance.
Every card has been gathered at random, after having been purchased, used, and discarded by either a visitor or resident of New York City. Some have been signed or otherwise marked, making each card unique with its own narrative potential.
Appropriating the language of playing cards, the work asks us to consider our intimate connection with the subway and the city. The face cards are inspired by landmarks across the five Boroughs, referencing the tremendous reach of the subway system.
Whether it’s a delay because of a sick passenger, train traffic ahead, or the ever-popular police activity, a “lucky hand” can make the difference between a brisk fifteen minute commute or a grueling, hour-long one.

  3. Vrrb Colourful identity
By Jan Vranovský
Vrrb Interactive is California based web-developing studio. The founder asked us to design colorful identity with custom logotype. We came up with several concepts from which he chose the one based on logotype which is trying to emphasize the “rrrr” sound in the word by ending the first letter the same way as ‘r’s are. This also adds some extra rythm to the wordmark. Color system is based on existing set of color papers (Pop’Set) since printing white on pre-colored papers allows for much wider color variety of applications for low price than printing each and every spot color.
