Sticker and Temporary Tattoo layout and design | inserted in UGOGRL Activity Collectible Trading CardsIt was recently brought to my attention that I haven’t pointed out on my site or blog quite enough about my experience (and absolute LOVE of) designing trading cards. Actually, it’s not just trading cards, it’s toys, games, playing cards, activity cards, stickers, tattoos, and the packaging & promotional materials that accompany them. Anything fun, interactive and needing consistency between related parts. sooo fun & always the most rewarding projects.

There is something about being responsible for a product — looking at it & thinking.. that was me! — very cool feeling. Also,  the organization & print-sheet setup for trading cards, game cards, stickers, tattoos, etc.. it kind of plays into my OCD :)

So, in order  to make sure it’s apparent: I am ready and willing to quote a trading card or game card (activity cards too) project from anywhere in the world at any time & would do an amazing job – using creativity and innovation to make the set as fun, interactive, clever and well.. just cool as it can possibly be ( I’m not a designer that just does exactly what she’s told.. if I have an idea I think would enhance the product, I lay it out on my own time & send it over, I am never afraid to make suggestions! (nor am I too big to just go back to the original plan if my idea isn’t in the client’s vision).

Beginner Dinner Games | Game Cards & Tin

Tin Design | Game Card Layout & Design | Beginner Dinner Games | FamilyTimeFun

Truly one of my favorite jobs & my first work with FamilyTimeFun back in mid 2007. Beginner Dinner Games was a fun and challenging product. The company had already produced and marketed their first game ‘Original Dinner Games’ and were ready to expand their line. The new game needed to ‘fit’ with the original, while still having it’s own brand. I looked at the original cards & really wanted to add some fun to the new set.

Choosing the colors, adding the background plate as a design element, integrating creative fonts and graphics to the games themselves really added to the overall effect while keeping the new game consistent with the Family Time Fun branding already in place.
