Steve Shapiro got their new other design by running a design contest:
Create a cool yet professional back for a deck of poker cards
Check out Steve Shapiro's Other design contest…
Personality Poker is a card game that helps people determine their personality style. It is a fun, educational tool. It is a fast-paced game that has been used in corporations, but we are now expanding it's use into the living room (family and friends).
What's your vision?
I want new backs designed for my Personality Poker cards. We've had a few versions done in the past that I am including for reference. It must say "Stephen Shapiro's Personality Poker" somewhere on the back. It should also have the website: personalitypoker.com. It can have the 4 suits in corners as their is some significance to that, but it is not critical. If you use suits, do not use the goofy faces that we have on the one design. The colors palette is not critical, but I would not go with purple or pink. I would go with a more neutral color. I am looking for something professional with a little flair. Classy yet not stuffy. This game is typically used inside of companies. But it is also used at parties and other events. It is also used a lot during speeches. If you want to see Personality Poker in action, you can watch a 3 minute video that shows how it is currently played at http://stephenshapiro.com/personality-poker-in-action/. You can learn more about personality poker at www.personality.poker. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions!
Personality Poker is a card-based game that helps players determine their personality style. There are 52 cards. Each card has suits and numbers (like regular poker cards), and words. The words describe personality traits. Players trade cards in a variety of ways to get a hand where they have 5 cards where the words best describe their personality style. We have been playing Personality Poker for years. *** If you are the winner, I may contract you to do the fronts (or I may do another competition) *** The card size is standard poker card size. 2.5 × 3.5 inches (64 × 89 mm). The purple back (pdf) is a sample of what was printed previously. This should help with the dimensions. See the two zip file attachments for templates. One file has the tuck box dimensions (this we will need later, but it would be ideal if the design fits in the window). The other is the card dimension. *** NOTE: I am waiting on the printer to let me know if the box in which the cards will be stored has a "window". If so, I will want the name to appear in that part...more soon as I know. Sorry I don't have this right now...I just realized after running the contest that this would potentially be important. I am including some designs from the front and back. Some were used previously. Others are just concepts I developed. I am ONLY at this time looking for a back redesign. The sheet with a number of designs are ones we used previously. The other two are ones I mocked up real quickly (I know, they are embarrassingly bad). As I said, we do NOT need the four suits in the corners. I am open to ANY design as long as it says Stephen Shapiro's Personality Poker (along with the website).
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Other design starts at $299.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their other design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Steve Shapiro collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
