DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Whimsical

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Playing Cards

INSPIRATION:
For this design, I prepared a thesis project which examines the history of the game cards, how they came out, and today's examples. During this research I have reached the meanings of the symbols. This gave me the idea of creating a new and different card deck.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This deck of 56 cards are the reinterpretation of the known playing cards symbols with a different design. Inspired by the logo of whimsical, the concept of the design is determined and supported by illustration. The simple one-color design is only simple in respect to the narrow lines, one color and hand painted edges. The backs of each card is decorated with a 3D appearing diamond texture.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
A product that attracts more attention to collectors. Special design for different ideas. Includes an annotation card that tells you that the symbols are different. After reviewing it, it is suitable for playing games except poker. In addition, you can create your own card game by adding your own creativity.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in February 2106 in Izmir and finished in September 2016 in Izmir, Elle Decor Italia, Design Milk and goop Many design blogs shared.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Toy, Games and Hobby Products Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The project has been worked on Adobe Illustrator. After the design was finished, the printing phase was realized in the printing press. Matte gray, black and metallic pantone are used in the design. The cards were printed on 320 gr. Maia Paper. The packaging is embossed with logo and some design details. The edges of the cards are painted fluorescent yellow to add design difference. Line Roulette Perforation for Silver Whimsical Stamp.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I got a lot of information from the internet and some books. There is a lot of internet resources contributing data about game cards in the world. I got a lot of help from the UK-based card collector Simon Wintle's website (the world of playing cards). After reviewing the various game card brands and designs, a different language was created for making the difference and for collectibles.

CHALLENGE:
The most difficult part of the project was the printing phase. I had to deal with paper selection and a lot of stuff. In the first trial, 200 decks were printed incorrectly, the selected paper design did not fit. And then the new 200 decks were printed.
