We've created a card game that people really seem to enjoy, and we have the concept of the game almost completely solidified, but we don't have any artwork for the cards yet. That's where you come in. We need 6 simple, vibrant (colors will be provided below), poker-card sized editable designs for a game we will be Kickstarting next month. I've provided examples of games I believe will match the aesthetic we are trying to achieve in the first example and the last one and artwork will be needed for both the front and the back of the cards. This game is fun, remember that! And you'll have to convey that fun in the design of the cards! This is a game that doesn't take itself too seriously, and people should get that as soon as they look at the card design! There are 6 different card's in the game altogether, so we need 6 different similarly themed card faces will need to be designed, and 3 different decks in the game, so that means three different similarly themed card backs. We'll need the ability to edit the words and numbers for these cards before we print, so we will also need the source file for the card face before we upload these to a manufacturer's website.
Poker card size: 2.5 X 3.5in
6 card faces and 3 card backs.
Card faces should be very straightforward and easy to read. You should see a black, blue, red, green, purple and yellow card in the photo examples I've taken. The nomenclature of these cards are similar to how we'd like the nomenclature of the final product to appear. The most important aspect of these cards are having the point value highly visible (with bold letters or designs that have it stand out) in the top left-hand corner of the card, along with a title that is in bold thick-lettered attractive font and easily readable (how you decide to position the title we'll leave to your creative process), the deck, card type, and attribute text should have similar nomenclature to what we have in the photo examples I've taken as well and there should be an area that we can enter descriptive text (descriptive text is not bold) if need be, but would look just as professional without any text in that area. Attribute text should also be bold with thick lettering. As a reference, use the Black Card photo example that labels the nomenclature of these cards. All the card faces should have the same nomenclature as the photos examples I've taken attached with this information, but five of the six card faces will have a simple theme and use one vibrant color and eye-popping title text. They should differ in color, blue, red, purple, green and yellow as seen in the examples below. The last card face should have a theme reminiscent of our logo only incorporating the nomenclature of the cards in the photo examples I've taken attached to this document. Remember to keep it simple, professional and interesting! We don't want these cards to come off bland, but we want them to draw enough attention to emphasize the fun of the game!
There are 3 different card backs which should be similar in theme using three different colors associated one to each deck. There should be a red card back with the word "Core" in the center, the lettering should be thick and bold. There should be a blue card back with the word "Trait" in the center, and a green card back with the words "Check Your Privilege" or "CYP" (whichever fits or looks better to you) on the back in the same style of lettering. We'd also like to incorporate the theme of the logo on the backs of the cards as well. The Check Your Privilege logo is attached to this document. Since this is a game about labels we'd like to keep that professional, name sticker label approach that we have with our games logo in some shape or form, try to use silhouettes of business people, or the label format if possible. Make the back of the card pop! Remember this game is eccentric and fun, even though the design should be simple, it shouldn't lack personality!
