Alphonse Mucha Card Deck Design
The first project of MFA Studio 1 Fall 2020 was to create 50 iterations of a famous poster that has personal meaning to us. I chose Alphonse Mucha’s JOB 1898 cigarette ad poster.
First I redrew every element from the original, then set to create 50 iterations. Then using those 50, I created a system for sorting the posters based on color, to create 4 suits worth of posters. Then from there, the number of elements in the poster itself became the system for which I established the numerical card value.
The card deck is fully functional with 52 cards and 2 jokers. To see more of the cards, and the project in greater detail: https://www.sophielindemann.com/
