Design in small steps! Follow steps below. If your design is not eliminated after a day, try the next step.
1: Three suit icons: Rock (blue), Paper (green), and Scissors (red). These suit icons appear in differing quantities and sizes; they must scale well. Unlike poker suit icons, these do not necessarily have to be flat.
2: A few non-face cards (in the Ace-10 range). Show how both low and high cards will look. I may ask for a specific card.
3: One face card. See "Pilatche_Face_Cards.pdf." If not eliminated, all face cards and the joker. Only difference between high/low jokers - one is black and white. The other is colored. I will guarantee the prize once I see good face cards!
4: Card back - same for each card in a deck. Simple pattern, symmetrical - there is no "upside-down", in at least two color schemes.
5: Fit each card face in dimensions shown - "card_dimensions.pdf"
6: Clean packaging "Poker_Size_Tuck_Box.pdf"
7. One card face that promotes you as a designer! It will ship with every pack of cards I produce with your design on it! And my first order will be for over 5000 decks.
Everything needed: To specified dimensions, design for deck packaging and all 42 card faces. (3 suits each with 13 ranks, high/low Jokers, and card back). The card manufacturer will need files with the layers intact, CMYK color. Preferred formats: Illustrator, Photoshop, PDF, though most formats are acceptable.
