Playing Cards: Process
I created a lot of sketches for this project to determine how I wanted
the cards to look. There are many different ways to layout the
cards, especially the number cards. They are also all slightly different which adds to the challenge. Some ideas were more experimental
than others and I wanted to try a range before deciding on the final
design. I experimented with using the names of numbers, for example writing “four”
instead of “4”. Ultimately, I went with using numbers, but I
still like the idea of words. (Maybe for the next deck.)
was decided early on that I would replace the standard suits with
unique ones, in this case cooking tools that relate to a specific
meal. Ladle/soup (appetizer), bread knife/bread (side dish),
spatula/burger (main dish), and whisk/cake (dessert).
Next post, the face cards.
