READY, SET, BURN RUBBER!
^ Front and back SPEED cards. These cards are used for movement and bidding during the game.
I created back designs inspired by european hood ornament designs used to differentiate between the Speed and Power cards.
Vertical and Horizontal orientations were also used to help differentiate the cards.
The design is intended to be minimal to ensure ease of gameplay, yet still have the overall visual impact and essence of speed that is DOWNFORCE.
Special care also went into the design to be inclusive of colorblind players.
^ Front and back POWER cards. Six different powers in the game. Each player can choose one power to use throughout the game.
Small secondary icons were created to help reinforce each power to go along with their qualities:
Aggressive, Unpredictable, Determined, Tricky, Strategic, and Cunning.
I enlisted Tavis Coburn to help create the cover art and spot illustrations.
His work oozes with style and grit, yet has a precision to angles and form that is perfect for DOWNFORCE.
^ For conventions and promotions I concepted and designed racing jerseys for TEAM DOWNFORCE.
^ A few more little promotional designs for buttons and an enamel pin.
