Diaspora Design


Here’s a groovy-graphic way to do good while looking good. Right now San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art is selling a series of specially-commissioned playing cards created by graphic designer Martin Venezky and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Cunningham. Titled Diaspora, the two sets of cards are part of SF MOMA’s Architecture + Design Forum and via pictures and words tell parallel stories of double movement: Humans fleeing the city and animals taking over what remains.

The idea is that just as cards mix during play, so do these disparate populations.

Futuristic! — In an artsy Will Smith kind of way.

The cards (including the example above) are available via 415-357 4025/ hfirestein@sfmoma.org — with all proceeds benefiting the A+D Forum.
