I chose a color scheme of pale grays and blues to reflect the tundra, with bright orange for contrast. I ended up creating twelve cards, using geometric designs, simple vector illustrations, and letterforms in a variety of patterns. My typography was limited to the different weights and styles of Huronia, and I varied the type using different colors, varying between dark gray and turquoise for body text, orange italic for headlines, and pale blue bold for the Inuktitut translation of the headlines.
As a container for my cardset, I designed and made the wooden box and wooden letters using a laser cutter. I chose the arrow shape of the cards because I thought it echoed the geometric shapes I used in my designs, especially for the snowflake, and added an interesting dynamic to the layouts.
