Alphabet Flash Cards for Design-Savvy Hipster Kids

Well, here’s a project you’ll either love or hate: Cape Town, South Africa-based designer and illustrator Emma Cook’s “Design Nerds Flash Cards,” which teach kids the alphabet using such examples as “D is for DSLR” and “M is for Moleskine.” While we wouldn’t fault you for questioning whether it’s a bit precious to teach five-year-olds about fixies, you have to admit that the set is head and shoulders above most kindergarten alphabet flash cards, design-wise. However you feel about this, just don’t take it too seriously. Cook calls the cards “another silly little side project,” and in that capacity, we’re well prepared to enjoy it. See more of her work on Behance and at her website.
