MAD Chess is a variation of chess created by game designer and entrepreneur, Cal Miller. The pieces were designed by Fernando JM in a minimalistic and elegant style, and in a way that lends some of the pieces to be used to create other badges or designs, such as the pawn used as both a border pattern and a logo that resembles a flower or cross.
