For this assignment together we will be designing a deck of playing cards that will be both fashionable and functional. The theme for the deck will be squid, which you can interpret anyway you would like, and will need to be included in your card illustration somewhere.
CARD DESIGNS NEED TO BE SUBMITTED NO LATER THAN APRIL 26TH 2017!! (see below for more specific details)
HOW IT WORKS / THE RULES
1. You will be assigned 5 cards at random. You are allowed to swap with others as long as you complete your 5 by APRIL 26TH 2017. 2. Your design must fit within the parameters of the template 7 inches x 9.75 inches. You were given a transparency template in class and there is a link to a copy below. 3.You will need to include something to do with a squid somewhere on your card. 4. It must be FASHIONABLE AND FUNCTIONAL. This means that it should be interesting to look at but also function as a playing card. If it takes more than 5 seconds to figure out what card it is, it is to obscure. 5. You can use any materials that you would like as long as it fits into the template
The dimensions on the template are for the actual cards. We will scan in all of your artwork and shrink it to the size of the cards. To play it safe you should keep your drawings to fit within a 7 inches x 9.75 inches frame.
