Playing Cards


For the final BA Illustration show at Falmouth (2019) I wanted to create a promotional item for the event. Key themes in my illustration work center on mystery and fortune-telling, including folklore related to fairy-tales.

Given this subject matter, how might I create an eye-catching campaign promotional item that signifies these themes and has longevity beyond the BA show?


A set of playing cards was created representing fortune and playfulness through floral designs. Each one is hand illustrated using watercolours and ink, afterwards digitised and printed on 300 gsm paper.
