My final project for Design for Media will consist of making a wooden 52-card deck (with 2 Jokers)based off of fairy tale characters. The card designs will be created on photoshop and later printed and transferred onto thin balsa wood (1/32″). Like in a card deck, the design on the back of the deck will repeat in each of the cards. Instead of using the usual hearts, diamonds, spades, and clubs I will use crowns, frogs, dagger, and a genie lamp. The Jack, King, Queen, Ace, and Jokers will have more complicated illustrations.
