SERIAL PLAYING CARDS
What do a high school chemistry teacher,
a waste disposal manager, a senator and a
blood spatter analyst have in common?

They’re all in the same deck.

I mean, they’re all criminals to varying degrees, but that’s not what mattered in this project initiated by Marion and me. It’s a shame that usually, playing cards depict strangers with no background stories. That’s why our cards portray well known characters from television series.

A CLEAN CUT GUY & HIS FRIENDS

Completely made from scratch.

The lack of deadlines meant plenty of time to build everything from ground up. That includes various patterns, variations of the four symbols and a standalone typeface based on the shapes of our characters.

Finishing touches.

We opted for four colours instead of the good old black and red—not only an aesthetic decision, because it also helps with recognizing the many straight flushes you’ll have when playing poker. The cards are printed on plastic for better flexibility, durability—and the ability to play cards under water.
