What do graduating designers need? Something to help them designing, having fun, and remember their teachers.
Inna Alesina proposed the idea to design a deck of method cards as a gift for the 2017 graduating seniors. She enlisted the help of student assistant Jessica Hernandez, who suggested that they make them into tarot cards.
The end result was a deck of 22 cards inspired by the Major Arcana. Each card contains a different design methods and exercises. Each deck also includes a handmade pouch sewn by Inna Alesina.
Faculty and students collaborated to create the cards.
The back of the cards includes patterns by juniors: Nadejda Augen, Krystal Carpintieri, Caroline Gillman, Samantha Smith, and Michaela Sonntag. The fronts feature icons designed by Jessica and sophomores: Bin Le, Destiny Hadel, and Kaelyn Cox.
VCD Faculty contributed with the selection of design methods and feedback.
