Hey All -
Newbie here and wanted to post some of my work for a kickstarter project I just started (Urban Punk Kickstarter Project). This design project was all about designing a custom deck of Bicycle Playing cards, along with some tshirts, hoodies, hats, and prints. When it came to the deck I was hoping to come up with something that would portray the uniqueness and hint of rebelliousness inherent in us all. I chose graffiti street art for its rebellious undertones and punk subcultures for the diverse vibrancy they represent.
I viewed both the physical cards and traditional designs as a “washed out” concrete wall where the bits of stencil-style graffiti imagery are the energizing and vibrant pop. This imagery also alters the traditional court designs into the punk subcultures. The motto is to break out from the norm, be different, be unique.
Here's the tuck box we designed for the deck...
Here is a shot of the Ace of Spades and Ten of Hearts:
The Queen of Hearts and Jack of Clubs:
