Trading Cards

February 24, 2011

Here are just a few of the trading cards I designed over the past decade:

I was responsible for design, art direction, approval process with movie studios licensing department, print pre-production, print quality control. Hundreds upon hundreds of unique designs met on a very short deadline. The amount of work involved equals the output of some fully staffed advertising agencies.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer-Evolution Trading Cards

April 8, 2009

Design: Gino Verna

Produced and Distributed: Inkworks, Morrisville, NC

This was the first trading card set I designed for Inkworks and it ended up winning product of the year from Non Sports Update Magazine in 2001.


A premium, limited, chrome-look set with all-new images telling the Buffy tale, from its beginning in Season 1 to previews of Season 6. In addition to the 50-card base set, this product has a refractor chrome-look parallel set and a set of nine foil portrait cards.  There are four cards plus one refractor card per pack.  Display boxes are a cigar-box style and contain 24 packs.
