Union Playing Cards

lovely-package-theory-11-union-cards-3

Designed by Jay Fletcher | Country: United States

“Timeless Americana is laced throughout the design, with iconography of colonial America and patriotic symbols of peace, prosperity, and potential. Unions are Made in America, using FSC-certified paper, vegetable-based inks, and starch-based laminates. Over a year in development, every aspect of the design was created from scratch – from the breathtaking court cards to the back design and Ace of Spades.

As a special edition, Unions are available in a historic Ironside Edition, with a display made of authentic 300-year-old reclaimed wood from the Charles Towne Navy Yard, used in construction of actual ships during the Revolutionary War and War of 1812. Four decks are inset in a special edition plank, branded with the US Constitution across the face.”

Designed by Joe White | Country: United Kingdom

“Designed in London by Joe White, Contraband Playing Cards were inspired by secret societies, conspiracy theories, and everything unknown. Every inch of the Contraband deck was designed from scratch – the court cards, the Aces, and even inside of the box.

Best of all: The Contraband Book Lamp. Two very special, 50-year old books. Each book has a secret. The top book is a functional lamp, handcrafted with an Edison bulb and antique nickel power switch. Slide the top book to reveal a secret compartment hidden inside. Four decks of Contraband Playing Cards reside within – yours to use or replace with contraband of your own.”

MM Identity Lab calendar

Designed by MM Identity Lab | Country: United States

“Every year, MM Identity Lab produces a calendar that correlates with the Chinese Zodiac. Because 2014 is the Year of the Wooden Horse, we decided to create a poker-inspired desk calendar that doubles as a deck of cards. The woodcut-style illustration and wooden holder play off of the Zodiac. 12 of the 52 cards in the deck represent the 12 months in the year and correlate with the four seasons. These calendar cards can be displayed on the wooden holder to guide a person through 2014. Come the next year, the calendar can hang around as a custom-designed deck of playing cards.”

Based on the concept of logo design that I created whimsical illustrations that have identified and encouraged.
