Project: Art + Play Cards
Launched: February 2021
Collective is a centre for contemporary art hosting a variety of exhibitions and workshops for people of all ages. I collaborated with them as well as community-based charities Circle and Fresh Start to design 'Art + Play' cards to be handed out to young people at local food banks along with their art packs. These cards contained prompts to encourage young people to get creative using the materials and tools inside the packs. For the illustrations on the back of the cards, I decided to design a series of characters in the shape of each card suit. Each character was abstract but could be seen taking part in various hobbies and activities. I kept the written elements very clear and simple to give space to imagine and think.
