Designed in Adobe Illustrator with Gill Sans typeface by Eric Gill
Overlapping glyphs create the symbols; number cards contain symbol designs encircled by a square pattern. Face cards pattern the first letter, such as a K for king etc. design, the addition of distinctive crowns for each face card also designed with overlapping glyphs. The card back designed using letters, numerals, punctuation marks and symbols to create a rectangular track. The colors black with red accents used are found on standard playing cards. It was with this project that I learned how to manage layers in Illustrator; it reawakened a deep connection with letter-forms that began in high school.
