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.

Review from http://www.tradingcardreviews.com/reviews/non_sports/SmallvilleSeasonSix.htm

Smallville: Season Six by Inkworks is now available both online or at your favorite Hobby Shop. The sixth season is just as exciting as the first and Inkworks brings it all to life in their beautifully designed cards. With autographs, costume cards and all the sweet images from Smallville: Season Six this is a great set.

There were two completed sets from this box in addition to the bonus insert cards. The PIECEWORKS card is the top worn by Kristen Kreuk as Lana Lang from the episode called “Zod“. The Autograph from this box is the talented Aaron Ashmore who plays Jimmy Olsen.There were two cards from the JUSTICE puzzle insert set (#5 & #6). There were also two cards from THE POWERS THAT BE set (#3 & #4) and out of the ARCHER’S QUEST set (which features Smallville’s newest hero, “The Green Arrow”) there was card #1 of the 3 card set.

This set is a fun and interesting one to open a box of. The guaranteed auto and costume card are great and the other inserts that appear throughout the box look wonderful. It’s always nice when there are so many inserts that you get to pull. It makes the packs fun and exciting to open even if you’ve already opened the packs with the autograph and costume card.”
