The studio created special playing cards in 2010. In order to celebrate summer vacations and as a gift for their clients and collaborators, they illustrated a poker pack of 52 cards (inspired by the 50’s). This card game is within a series of traditional games (Unplugged collection) that the studio delivers since 2009 to enliven the Augusts’ vacations without relying on technology and electricity.

Illustrators: Guadalupe González, Javier Suárez and Gerard Oró.

This Blog about This Blog: 50,000 Times Interesting for People

I want to say several words about new modest achievement of this blog. It did not take too long after the first month on WordPress to gain people’s attention 10,000 times.  And due to that I was pleased to see that my blog was really interesting for people. The third month on WordPress did not disappoint me as well – so many readers from so many places around the globe. It is so interesting. And now I can inform you that more than 50,000 times this blog was interesting for people. Not so bad result for the 4,5 months of its existence.

Main aims of this blog were described some time ago. I am glad that I was able (in different ways) to realize some of them. And I hope I will be able to continue with this.

As always this blog has been found interesting by new people from new places around the world since its third month on WordPress. It is so pleasant to see new readers from new countries (Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bolivia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cambodia, Cameroon, China, Côte d’Ivoire, Dominican Republic, Estonia, French Polynesia, Gibraltar, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Malawi, Slovenia, Uganda). At the same time the activity of the readers from different places varies. So I decided to share my Top 15 (according to the internal statistics of WordPress) with you. Maybe it will be interesting for you to find out that you are not the only one in your country who reads this blog.

Bēhance: Aquatic Playing Cards by Nicole Avena

Aquatic playing cards designed by Nicole Avena – the designer from Florida (United States). This card deck exhibits a mixed abstraction of both realism and collage. While the back of the deck is intended to encourage an ocean, the photographic element of the torn pieces, range from dark to light, from sea bottom to surface. The illustration is then broken up by undulating white lines, acting as the white crest of ocean waves.

She broke the suites up into 4 phylum of sea creatures: Mollusca, Chordates, Cnidarian, and Arthropods. The symbols of the coral, clam barnacle, and puffer fish denote the most basic creatures of each phylum. As the incremental value of the face cards increase, so does the threatening nature of each creature in that phylum.
