A fun graphic arts project for myself
As a challenge to myself as a graphic designer, I decided to make up hockey trading cards of each member of the team. I thought it would be a fun way to test myself with a new creative design project.
The design of the card is based on an old card I saw one. I tried to emulate the style from what I remembered. It was designed in Illustrator.
I took apart the Winnipeg Jets logo and added some effects to it to make it stand out a bit more, added texturing to the 'blades' at the bottom, and gave a subtle glossy shine on the top left and bottom right corners to reproduce a glossy trading card look.
The character images are simply screenshots from the video game itself. Nothing added or taken away on them.
