Created for publication in the Ig Nobel Prize ceremony program. The client, Artisan's Asylum, wanted to use their logo but incorporate shiny diamond plate, so I adapted the logo to use the diamond plate as the background for the ad.
To achieve a flier that looked like something different from a traditional postcard, I suggested the concept of a tarot card design for this Halloween weekend dance party (with a heaven and hell theme) in Dallas, TX.
The hand-illustrated cards are based on real tarot illustrations representing the devil and the lovers.
The Gypsy House Party cards feature two of the event's well-known DJs as the tarot archetypes. The house image, repeated on card fronts and back (pictured third), ties together both sides of the design. The images you see here were printed on a heavy stock with rounded corners to emphasize the tarot card look and feel.
