Project: Mindrax Cards for Poker
We think traditional playing cards are boring and they are ready for a new design. Some companies are already selling black or gold poker cards but either with a too complex design or in a bad quality.
Therefore we want to provide unique, functional and high quality poker cards.
In order to realize that, we need a simple and outstanding card design.
Before we describe the general specifications: Please be creative, we are open for your ideas.
Size of each card: 8,8x6,3cm
Number of cards: 55 (including 3 Jokers)
Cards (Same as for standard poker card sets): 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 6 – 7 – 8 – 9 – 10 – Jack – Queen – King – Ace – each with four different symbols (hearts, diamonds, clubs, spades)
General design: Like a jumbo Index – with big letters and numbers on the side (Please see: http://www.playingcardsandmore.com/…ards.aspx)
First, please see some ideas for the design in the attachments. We added a heart king, a heart four and the clubs king. The main color of the Mindrax cards is black instead of the usual white.
Please keep the image cards simple, we do not need complex graphics for the Kings, Queens, Jacks and Jokers.
We thought about a strong blue for the heart and diamond cards, and white for the club and spade cards. Especially the blue color needs to be really intense because it needs to have a good visibility also after printing the cards. It should be possible to play with the cards also in darker rooms, so the easy identification of the numbers and symbols is very important. Any other color proposals are welcome.
Please feel free to add own ideas for the design of the numeric cards. Please find an idea (Heart_4) attached.
King, Queen, Jack:
Please have a look on the example king card. For each symbol (heart, diamonds, clubs, spades) we need a different king, queen and jack. The different kings, jacks and queens only need to be slightly different (For example a different sword, crown, head etc. is sufficient).
We need 3 different joker cards, as for the other image cards, they just need to slightly differ from each other. The joker cards do not have a symbol on the side, so just add the word ‘JOKER’ on both sides (Example is attached).
Please feel free to add own ideas for the design of the ace cards.
For the backside we need a simple pattern which fits the general design and we also want to include our logo. Please find an idea and our logo attached (The pattern in the attached idea is very complex, it should just give a general impression)
We are looking forward to great designs :)
