The goal of this project was to design a deck of cards around a theme, with the chosen theme being Egyptian Lore. A deck of cards have a lot of integrated pieces from suits, colors, and groupings. So, it was also necessary to establish rules and system elements in order to carry out a unified system among the deck of cards.
In this deck of cards, I aimed to create a blend between ancient Egyptian culture and digital distortion artifacts—two things that couldn’t be further apart.
I drew inspiration from ancient Egyptian artifacts such as hieroglyphics and religious symbols. I brought in the idea of digital distortion with the glitchy repetitions and alterations of text on the cards and the box. This idea was drawn from the idea from those computer glitches that would duplicate things like dialing boxes on screen when you moved them.
