As one of the few things in life that rewards you for being a filthy, potty-mouthed despicable person, it’s little surprise Cards Against Humanity has become such a tour-de-force-de-houseparty. Now, design types have decided to upgrade it from its sombre monochrome, launching The Design Pack for those with an eye as much on visual culture as they have for implying you’d enter into coitus with your nan’s slipper. The project is formed from a partnership between Cards Against Humanity and the Chicago Design Museum, and features work by 30 designers including Milton Glaser, Erik Spiekermann and Paula Scher. Each creative took inspiration from George Carlin’s 1972 monologue “Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television.” These, for any interested parties, are shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker, and tits. You’re welcome.
The Design Pack is available through designpack.org, or at the Chicago Design Museum, and profits from its sales will benefit the not-for-profit contemporary design gallery.
