The world’s favorite card game gets a sleek makeover.
Back in January, Brazilian graphic designer Warleson Oliveira shared his conceptual UNO design on Behance. Naturally, the creative world went wild for it and Mattel (the largest toy company on earth and creator of the popular card game) caught wind of it. Subsequently, UNO Minimalista went into production. This means that design geeks will get the chance to gush over the streamlined numerals while matching them.
A beautiful, simplistic design makes the UNO Minimalista™ deck completely unique; Warleson Oliveira’s minimalistic design for UNO® was brought from concept to reality by Mattel in less than 30 days! Game play is like classic UNO®. Players match cards using color and numbers. Wild and challenge cards can change the momentum of the game.
Mattel has been experimenting with various UNO versions of late, including a Braile version and the highly popular Basquiat set, which was part of the limited UNO® artiste series. There’s even a Rick and Morty version doing the rounds at the moment. However, none have quite garnered as much fan demand as the Minimalista deck.
The set is currently only in the production stage but it’s already getting a substantial amount of attention on social platforms. Perhaps it’s the departure from the usual garish colors, opting for elegant symbols on a premium black backdrop instead. Or the fact that audiences want to feel more involved with the products they buy in today’s world. Either way, Mattel listened and answered.

- Mattel and the National Federation of the Blind have partnered together to create a Braille edition of UNO®, the iconic family card game. UNO® has always prided itself on being a card game for everyone, but often blind and low-vision people found it difficult to participate.
“UNO Minimalista, designed by @warlesonoliveira, demanded by fans! You asked for it, you got it! #UNOMinimalista coming later this year,” the Instagram announcement read.
No further news has come out since then, but the new deck is expected to cost around $10.

Mattel is releasing a premium deck of UNO cards so clean – you’ll almost forget the correct UNO attack rules. The correct attack rules, of course, being that you cannot stack +2 and +4 cards as per the official conduct. Presenting: the UNO Minimalista Edition.
Designed by Warleson Oliveira, this edition features a smooth blacked-out rear face complemented with brilliant colours in the front. As you’d expect, the classic logos and symbols have also been given a contemporary reimagining.
This isn’t the first time a special edition deck of UNO cards sporting a themed designed has been dropped. In recent times, there has been the Braille Edition created in collaboration with the National Federation of the Blind, a Nonpartisan pack devoid of red and blue cards – a reference to the Democratic and Republican parties in US politics – and even a deck featuring Jean-Michael Basquiat’s most iconic works.
The UNO Minimalista Edition has yet to be released but will soon be available at associated retail outlets for an extremely reasonable price of approximately US$10. Which, in all honesty, is money well spent.
