Donny Brook Playing Cards
Designer CJ Ocampo has spent a long time working on this deck. And it shows.
Starting with a physical, analogue drawing with white ink on black paper, CJ’s skills really shine. This artwork was then digitised into a vector image for printing.
The Tuck Case
CJ’s aim was to make a box the like of which the world has not seen. And he did. Normally you have a product or brand name front and center on the case. Not with these. You get an box that has all-over printing of a stunning hand drawn image.
Design in Spades
CJ made over thirty variations of the Ace of Spades, but wasn’t entirely happy with any of them. He thought he should try and more minimal approach, and rather than fill the design with his drawings, he decided to prune some out. This approach gives the stunning design room the breath.
Who Was Donny Brook?
Well, it’s not a who, but a where. Donnybrook was a very famously crazy event that started in 2014 and took place in Dublin for hundreds of years. In modern times, Donnybrook is thought of as a fairly high end supermarket. CJ wanted to name the cards after something that was notorious back in the day, but is now thought of as upscale.
