Soleil is the name of the typeface used in the specimen deck I designed in the form of a card game. A specimen deck explains typography fundamentals in conjunction with a specific topic.


The deck’s theme, „421 days of travel,“ is based on my journey around Southeast Asia in 2017 and 2018. It is similar to a short travel journal outlining what I’ve experienced. So, the cards became a reminder of all the great things I already have done but also that there is so much more to discover.

Each card suit represents three different countries, and they are listed on the Ace cards. The Queen, King, and Jack cards usually include a well-known landmark or building from the region. I also discuss a particular subject for each of the suits – such as food, accommodations, and how it is to be a so-called “Solo-Traveller.”
