Here we go! A few ago I designed a poker deck for Bycicle Playing Cards company. This is the result and the process I followed to finish it, I hope you like it!

Here’s all the process i followed to create the deck:
Special Aleix Gordo Hostau card with bio.
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.
Sketches and final version of the back part of the cards.
Process and final box.
And here’s a little review of a specialized reviews of decks of cards page (on youtube you have reviews in all languages).
