    details
    The first project for design collective Double Blind (myself and five other designers) is a custom deck of playing cards themed around various Chicago landmarks, personalities and historical events. The cards are focused on the more unique and quirky aspects of the city rather than just tourist hotspots.

  • In addition to producing decks of cards, we created a 3-color screenprinted poster featuring the deck in its entirety. Presented in this format, the card faces give a nice overview of all that Chicago has to offer.
