Packaging & Illustration | To attract a modern audience, I created a complete set of playing cards using hand drawn illustrations with a colorful palette. My inspiration for the project is based on the word "dapper", where I pulled images of smart and stylish men and women in formal wear, reminding me of a classy 1920's dinner party. I wanted to add a more comedic approach to the cards, thus creating the "Dapper Cats" playing card set. The project was then successfully funded through a Kickstarter campaign, raising over $3,600 and allowing me to purchase wholesale. During Christmas of 2020, I reached national recognition in the Parade magazine as the number one gift idea for shoppers. I currently sell the cards via my Etsy shop (click the "shop" link above). 2022 Update: Dapper Dogs Playing Card Set recently just launched. See project below, immediately following the Dapper Cats Playing Cards.
