native playing cards

One of my favorite projects to date which allowed me to combine illustration skills with design. Through research I was able to combine patterns found in Native American culture with some more modern design and illustration. I attempted to make a real system out of this set of cards. In fact, if you look closely the shapes of the suits are cut out of the blouses of each queen. Plus, there are a few other cookies in there.

On the right is the card box mock-up featuring  the colors and patterns found in the set.

If you really felt inspired by the cards, here is a special edition shirt.
