What's your vision?
We're looking for a deck of playing cards to be designed for use in our poker app. You can check out our website at playonclubs.com to see what the current iteration of playing cards looks like that we're hoping to improve upon. General direction: The Clubs brand is meant to be modern, simple, with perhaps a hint of futurism. We’d like this theme to be carried out through the playing cards as well. Playing cards direction: We’re looking for a more modern, interesting take on playing cards that still keeps it very simple and easy to read at a glance. We’re NOT looking to resemble the traditional playing cards today, with the intricate faces for Jack/Queen/King, or other traditional elements. So, there's no need for custom illustrations. Use of stock assets (e.g. the spade) is completely acceptable. Playing card requirements: - Our brand uses Titillium Web and Lato fonts - Our colors are Black (#1C1C1C), Green (#28CF75), Blue (#3939FF), and Red (#EA5264) - We are looking for a 4-color deck, not the traditional 2-color deck, which means - Clubs are green and Diamonds are blue - The card shouldn't be symmetrical like most decks, since they'll never be shown upside down - These cards will be displayed relatively small in size, so intricate patterns will be lost. Simple is the name of the game here! For the purposes of this contest, it's my understanding from talking with 99designs that we shouldn't expect to receive the full deck of cards designed. So instead, I invite you to create a sample of 1 or 2 cards that showcase the design direction you want to take the playing cards. For the winner of the contest, there is an opportunity to advance to a 1:1 project to flesh out the rest of the 52 cards.
I'm happy to provide as much guidance as you'd like, provide feedback on early iterations, be a sounding board, etc. Just let me know. I encourage you to look at other poker sites to see how they do their decks. Some examples are Pokerstars, GGPoker, America's Cardroom, etc. I'm also attaching a screenshot of what our deck of cards currently looks like, as well as what the cards look like when used in game. Happy to provide more assets on request.
