Contest Brief

Hello!

I need an idea for the back of the cards in my board game. In this contest I'm looking for just Line Work, not color renders. Whoever comes up with the most intriguing and interesting / unique design that would set this card back out in front of the others of its type will win.

I have attached two images.

card_back_references.jpg will show you the four different types of cards in my game. I would like you to some how incorporate the theme of the "middle bar illustration" you see. The path, the scroll, the chain, and the branches. There are also four different colors correlating to the cards which you may or may not utilize. Also on the right hand side are four different icon's used in the game, you don't have to use these at all but I just thought I'd include them. If you want to show color in your drawing please don't spend much time on it but you can throw it in there to get the idea.

card_back_ideas.jpg are other card backs I find interesting.

Things the card back must have:
- the path theme
- the scroll theme
- the chain theme
- the branches theme
- "The Gamename" included in the card back (for instance instead of the World of Warcraft card having World of Warcraft printed it would have The Gamename)

    do you have a logo for "The Gamename" or do you just want the words on it? Thanks

      The Gamename doesn't have a logo yet - if you'd like to come up with something using those words feel free! It may set you above the rest

    would it be possible to seal the contest?

      I would rather give my budget to the contestants, rather than freelancer.com

      If you would like you could have "archworx" all over the image like most photo repositories might do to make sure you purchase the image.

      This may also give you more idea's for your own submission(s) because you can see other people's ideas!

    Hi! So should we include all of the four theme/elemnts on the illustration, or any of them? Game nam should be in the middle of the design?

      Please include the four "themes" - the path/scroll/metal chain/tree branch. You do not need to include or use at all the other four icons shown to the right.
      The Gamename can be anywhere you want, typically it would be in the center but it could be in other positions.

    So what you're saying is, have four individual cards with four individual themes and the title?

      Nope! Just one card. But on that card I would like you to incorporate the path/scroll/metal chain/tree branch ideas. Then have the title.

    Hello, I was wondering if the symbols from the game that you included in the attachment had a connection to one of the themes? For instance the red jem and the chain theme.

      nope the four symbols are just some components unrelated to the theme's.
