Fifty Two

A collection of 52 poster iterations based on Paul Rand's iconic IBM rebus poster (1981).
I have explored, analysed, and deconstructed the shapes, forms, and colors in the poster and used them
to recreate fifty different compositions.​ Paul Rand described the rebus as "a kind of game designed
to engage the reader and incidentally, lots of fun". Playing with this concept, I turned the compositions into
a unique deck of playing cards which can serve as a collector's item. These forms and colors have
also been used to create an abstract version of the icons for all 4 suites + the joker cards.
