Playing Cards

Happy New Year everyone!

Recently I was home in LA for the holidays. Each time I go back, I make an attempt to clean up my room, whether it’s just dusting up or clearing out childhood sentiments that I’m no longer attached to. My room’s fairly big, which means more space to store junk.

The portion I cleaned out most of this visit was my walk in closet… I normally throw in unused/unwanted gifts and leave clothes I grew out of, fashion-consciously speaking. While rummaging through all the old backpacks and other random items, I found this lovely project I completely forgot about. It was a deck of cards I made for a graphic design project. I believe the assignment was to product graphic design product of printed medium.. I chose to make a deck of cards. Thanks mom and dad for owning a printing shop. Flipping through all the hand written then scanned numbers and letters, I was most excited to see that I had included friends and classmates into the Jacks, Queens, and Kings of the decks. I kind wish the whole deck was 54 different people, but then again the time frame was short. Nonetheless I’m really glad I have about 6 decks left and so I decided to give it to my friends as a thanks for being part of my project. Requests were made and then began a project sequel..

I went to the container store hoping to find a simple container (hopefully cheap in $$$) to put the cards in and mail it to my friends who wanted a deck. Of course the plastic containers were out of budget but I did find some small linen gift bags within budget, keeping in mind that I have left over ink-cloth transfer paper at home. I’m glad the bags can look somewhat like a decent package for the cards. Mini night project FTW.
