Family Game Nights

My entire family has always loved game nights. We play everything from board games to card games to combinations of the two. I have had this project in mind for many months, and I jumped at the chance to create it for a class project. I wanted to create something special to each member of my family, but I also wanted something that any viewer could enjoy. The result was a deck of cards that contained specific cards representative of my individual family members. I used each of the face cards for each of the five members of my immediate family: The Ace and Jack for my two sisters, The Joker for my brother, and the King and Queen for my father and mother respectively.

I created these designs, as well as each of the number cards, on my iPad using Procreate. I then transported the layers into Photoshop where I made a few final adjustments. I sent them off to a printer (You’re On Deck) that specializes in playing cards.

These cards ended up being my Christmas present to my family this year. The enjoyment they got from flipping through the cards and finding the one that represents each of them was wonderful to watch. I hope they encourage many more family game nights.
