Student Work – Morgan Sterns

February 7, 2013 | 1 Comment

Designed by Morgan Sterns | Country: United States

“Alchemy is defined as a form of chemistry and speculative philosophy practiced in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance and it’s concerned principally with discovering methods for transmuting baser metals into gold and finding a universal solvent and an elixir of life.

In an attempt to bring a modernized design approach to the ancient practice of alchemy, I created a fictitious brand called Alchimia for my MFA graduate package design class. The prompt was to conceptualize and develop a survival kit and instead I opted to create a high-end kit for the modern day alchemist.

Embossed black and gold lettering on fine linen paper give each piece of the kit a luxurious feel while the black on black treatments keep the package design modern, simple, and elegant.”

Zombie Tarot

December 7, 2012 | 7 Comments

Designed by Headcase Design | Country: United States

“Quirk Books asked us to develop a zombie-themed tarot card deck. Rather than take a more typical overly-bloody horror approach, we conceptualized the project as a crazy, campy, late 50’s/early 60’s retro interpretation of a classic tarot deck. As B-Movie fanatics, we wanted to capture the off-beat zaniness those old movies have. We tried to bring a touch of wit and subtlety to the project, as well as a morbid sense of humor.”
