This project is 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.
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 playing cards are 2.5" wide and 3 1/2" high (poker cards) with rounded corners. Please allow a 1/4" border for all text/graphic elements.
Backgrounds can bleed over the edge.
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:
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 design needs to say Copyright 2009, UrbanSurvivalPlayingCards.com at the bottom of the card.
I would like to choose a design before Thursday.
