Special Aleix Gordo Hostau card with bio.

CMYK básico

This were the very first proposals for Bycicle’s logo redesign and an exploration on how the numbers, cards, box and figures should look and feel.

This is the process I followed to design all the figures in the deck. I first sketch the character with pencil (with a previous “casting”), scan it, clean it and prepare it for vectorization. After that I “ink” the strokes and add color simultaneously. Finishing touches and fitting the design into the card. This is the King of Diamonds.

Process for Queen of Clubs.

Process for Jack of Hearts.

I decided to create servant type characters for Jacks, so each character has an element that reaffirms the symbology that represents every type of cards.

Process for Ace of Spades.

I decided to recreate one of the oldest logos from Bycicle cards. Actually the design about the angelon the bycicle is from XIX century. I made my own version with one of my Eye Babies.
