Deck of Cards Desgin This deck of cards is done for packaging class and design for Spring season. Throughout my research, I found that most of the designs were full of colors. I adapted the idea of colors within my project, but also I decided to inter the diamond shape as well into the card design. I worked on the flower theme. I used my own drawing patterns for the entire deck cards to make them more unified and unique as well. In fact, I really thought that flowers highly represent spring, even though in my country the meaning of spring doesn't really go in this direction, but somehow we still like this aspect of spring season. Finally, I presented my diamond set of deck cards to tell about the story of spring.


My interest in illustration stems from my desir to reprsent my personal prespective visually. I draw objects in details using expressive way, but also every concept needs certain methods to be illustrated well.

Desert is the most valuable natural environment that contains unlimited beauty. My concept represents the desert as something that still holds its sprit. Camels, falcons, sand dunes and desert trees always represented as keywords for this fascinating environment. My illustrations for desert consist of three drawings. I used wash and black pen. The project is done for British Council “Sketches by Boz�.
