Whimsical Playing Arts | First Edition

This deck 54 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.

Spades are among the four suits of playing cards. they are listed on top of all playing cards in bridge. typically symbolize death. Hearts are among the four suits of playing cards. they are the second in ranking within all playing cards. typically symbolize love or romance. Diamonds are among the four suits of playing cards. they are the third in ranking in bridge. typically symbolize health and wealth. Clubs are known as flowers or clovers in some parts of africa. they are among the four suits of playing cards. they are the last in ranking within all playing cards in bridge. Typically symbolize war.



Everything that started with the symbols of playing cards. And these symbols have inspired me. I adapted own graphic style. The simple one-color design is only simple in respect to the narrow lines and one color. The images for each card are elaborate, intriguing, and add joy to your game of cards.


The backs of each card is decorated with a 3D appearing diamond texture.

Based on the concept of logo design that I created whimsical illustrations that have identified and encouraged. In general, a certain line art made using the technique of vector based graphics language that supported the program.






Vector program and printing process. I prepared illustrations for the vector program. I have completed a minimal style of card and packaging work.
I am very happy to have created a different idea. I get very positive feedback from my customers and everybody else.

Whimsical arts will continue with different playing decks and designs.
