How SurvivalDave started their banner ad journey

Company name

UrbanSurvivalPlayingCards.com

Overview

This project is for the card back/box design for a deck of playing cards with 52 tips, tricks and insider secrets to survive natural and manmade disasters in an urban environment. It focuses on practical, proven urban survival strategies and not on scary "we're all going to die" scenarios, so please avoid "wacko" images.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

My target audience is couples with kids and/or empty nesters who see the need to prepare for disasters themselves rather than depending on the government to save them when disasters happen. They are well read, hard working, and enjoy learning new things.

The majority of the audience is in the US

Requirements

I would rather go with a limited number of colors if possible, as it will speed up drying time during the production process. I REALLY am looking for a simple, fast design.

The cover for the book that the deck is based on can be seen here:

http://surviveinplace.com/bookcover.pdf

The design can be EXACTLY like the title (with the distressed black text on a yellow background) or you can take creative liberty with it. The text used should say, "Urban Survival Playing Cards"

The current design for the card back can be found here:

http://www.urbansurvivalplayingcards.com
and
http://99designs.com/contests/31687

Build off of the current design or go with a new one.

I like the current design with the exception of the following:

1. It's a US audience...I'd like to get rid of the Eiffel Tower.
2. The font on the 2 URLs is too small. Please make it bigger.

Here's the template for the card back:

Here's the box template:

http://libertyplayingcards.com/Port…window.pdf

The box should use the same design as the card back on the largest face.

The edge faces should all say:
"UrbanSurvivalPlayingCards.com"
"Insider secrets to help you survive civil breakdown after disasters"

The other large face (with the 1/2 circle cutout at the top) will have text on it that I will provide.
