Minim is a beautifully simple deck of regulation playing cards from Joe Doucet x Partners for Areaware that strips the traditional recognisable symbols found on a pack of cards to the bare minimum. The idea behind the design was to see how much could be removed while maintaining a "playable" pack. In the place of ornate and figurative depictions, pared down, geometric forms were used. As it is a requirement that the backs of regulation playing cards be marked, Doucet did so with just a diagonal line. The cards are manufactured from sustainably harvested card stock and vegetable-based inks are used in their printing.
