Revisiting the cards I did with the Black Rock Collective, for their 2 card decks to date. I art directed and managed both of these projects, and I still love the unlimited ideas that come through with everyone's art.
The first deck was an open canvas, unlimited style, colour and typographic treatment. It's amazing to see how everyone's art sits together, although almost all the cards are completely different in style and medium. I landed the Jack of Hearts and the Joker on that set.
Deck two was more refined I think. Limited colour palette (black, white and red) and a uniformed suit and value. Again, we went wild with content, but the cohesiveness of the limited palette makes the deck really feel like a complete set. If that makes sense. I got the King of Diamonds and the 5 of spades on that one. Enjoy!
