Designing with purpose.

I came across Egor Bashakov, a designer on Behance. His piece/installation House of cards blew me away! This is a small example of his excellent use of clean typography with patterning to create an over sized deck of cards based on social aspects of life.

15 cards made of cardboard and vinyl adhesive;

The big card house, as allegory tha tmakes comments on the validity. Each card symbolizes aspect of social human life which can seem improbably important and vital, but actually can easily fail and lose an urgency. Like a huge something, built from wrongly placed priority, can fail in any second as ambitions would fail, degrees and vital principles of many people if war, for example, has suddenly begun or there would be a natural cataclysm

This reminds me of Radiohead’s House of Cards.
