A commission from the Texas Hold’Em card Company to design the back of their cards. In order to be a playable card the design must be the same from each corner to the center, to prevent marking of the card. The client wanted a “Texas” theme of elements. I started with the horseshoe as an anchor to the design. It symbolizes both the cattle culture in Texas as well as a symbol of luck. After that I added in other themed elements to round out the design, including retro outfitted Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders.
