Revisiting a class assignment from 2016 with new ambition and skills to revise, revamp, and ultimately expand a project into something more interesting than it was is always a fun opportunity.
With the idea of expansion in mind, I took my old Violent Femmes fictional album, House of Cards, and redesigned the base assets in the cards themselves as well as the house of cards on the front of the album. After getting the basic design elements down, and revamping some of the existing products (the initial album and the posters, respectively), I started to expand the concept into two parts: a limited edition "pre-order" bundle and general merchandise.
This upload showcases the general merchandise for House of Cards:
• a standard album jacket with a structured house of cards
• a series of three posters with the band member face cards on the front and the card back as the back
• a tee shirt with a graphic that relates back to the album art
• and a pullover hoodie with a prominent feature of the card back design
