Do you really need minimal playing cards? Well, next time your friend hits his straight on the river, you can’t be too sad if you’re looking at these beautiful cards. In best Jonny Ive fashion, the Atelier Playing Cards have been designed using a common geometric foundation, similar to the infamous iOS7 icon grid.

On the cards, the suits are complemented well by the use of the Verlag typeface making them look very elegant and of course: minimal!

The back features a radial motif design, inspired from the opening motion graphics sequence of the 2006 James Bond Film ‘Casino Royale‘.
