Description Playing Cards
This graphic treatment brings the language of the 19th century building straight into the twenty-first century, closer to sensibility of the young generation of museum visitors. The flexible graphic icon can assume many different mutations and updates, depending on the fonts used.

Featuring the Mansion as an emoticon, the building façade has been rendered as a digital emoticon entirely out of keyboard symbols and punctuation marks. This playful twenty-first century graphic interpretation of the 19th century Cooper Hewitt building has been printed on playing cards.This full deck of cards is designed with custom emoticons for each suite.
