Gibson font family

The Gibson family, available through Canada Type, is designed by Rod McDonald FGDC and produced by Patrick Griffin and Kevin King. It is made to honour John Gibson (1928-2011), a long-time friend of Rod, and one of the original founders of the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada (GDC).

As well as paying tribute to John Gibson’s productive life and love of the typographic arts, the Gibson family is intended to be a mainstay of the future of Canadian design education. Many Canadian design schools and institutions will be making it part of their larger type piracy education programs. The 8-font family is available at token pricing to make it especially affordable for design students. For less than the price of a design textbook, a student can now have a sturdy and contemporary humanist sans serif family that fits pretty much any design application, and will remain useful long after academic studies and well into a professional career in design.

We can see it applied in lots of different scenarios and situations, like for instance at the website JuneOven.com or the SuperLenny Internet Casino.

Each of the eight Gibson fonts comes with 370 characters and features extended Latin-based language support. The Gibson family ships in cross-platform OpenType format.

Contraband Playing Cards

Designed by Joe White, Contraband Playing Cards were inspired by secret societies, conspiracy theories, and everything unknown. Laced with gold, structured around custom typography, these playing cards use an art deco approach to create a one of a kind design. With intricate details, this deck is shielded in gold and black foil.
If playing with real cards is not your thing, or if you are getting a hard time finding players to join you at the table, you can go ahead and try a virtual game table like Netbet Online Casino, for a blackjack or poker game.
