By the Designer + For the Designers

 

Daily, we come across some really interesting  projects. But it’s not daily that we stumble across something unique and innovative. I happened to checkout 3 of these really unique and interesting Design projects. Not only were they related to design, but most importantly they were powered by so many designers.

Today to run a successful project online, you not only require sufficient resources and time, but most importantly what you need is – ‘ AN IDEA’ You have to set foot where no other has within the digital frontier. And that’s what these guys have done. They worked with simple ideas and built something amazing out of it.  What’s more amazing is that these projects are fueled by creativity and design not from a single source but from multiple creatives. It showcases a vast plethora of  skill, technique and styles. Thus not only a visual treat but a great place to discover new talent and new designers and inspiration.

Here you have 3 amazing projects I recently stumbled upon :

  • Creative Cards
  • Run Your Jewels
  • Gum Cards

#1 GUM CARDS

GUM CARDS is an ever-expanding set of limited edition, screen-printed trading cards focused on artists and designers who are rocking our creative industry and, in my humble fan opinion, deserve their own trading card. Each GUM CARD is a limited edition release of 250 plus 50 colour variants, hand-signed and numbered by me for authenticity. All GUM CARDS are screen-printed on double-thick, French Muscle-Tone Black 140lb. cover stock by the amazing crew at Mama’s Sauce in Orlando, Florida. Thick stock and bright inks. Heavy duty stuff. All GUM CARDS orders will be shipped in custom packaging I’ve designed myself. For added protection, each card will be inside individual plastic sleeves so no scratches happen in transit to your collection. On top of that I will be supplying some extra goodies like stickers, buttons, and of course gum. Yum! GUM CARDS was created, developed and designed by James White,Signalnoise Studio.

#2  CREATIVE CARDS

“The main aim of the project is to create something astonishing, collectible and unique. We have invited 54 top digital creative ninjas and asked them to pick up one card each and make a design of it in their own style and technique. We are proud that there are such gurus as Joshua Davis, Shotopop, Brosmind, Your-Majesty and others. The one and the only requirement to the authors was so that the theme of their artwork should fit to the card they’ve chosen best and as a result we’ve got a deck of individually illustrated playing cards. Needless to say, that the project is now going the right way and reaching the goal rapidly. The decks will be released in a strictly limited edition by the end of April.”
