For my HND Digital Imaging class we were tasked on illustrating a full deck of cards using Photoshop and Illustrator. I decided to go all out and put together a (not really functional) board game, complete with a range of cards and board pieces and portable box in which to carry them all.
Since I am rather obsessed with Lovecraftian / Cosmic Horror – that seemed as good a theme as any.
Some of the card designs, front and back.
And the box design, board pieces and finished product, including some small playing pieces and a dice. I’d have liked to have spent a bit more time polishing these extras but time was an issue (and they weren’t really necessary for passing the class anyway).
I’ll probably revisit this idea at a later date in my own time though and maybe try to develop it into something that’s actually playable.
