52 Serial Killers

Floyd Hughes, Visual Communications.

For my Visual Communications class I had to design a deck of playing cards, so I chose the topic of ‘Serial Killers’. I liked my idea so much, I decided to physically create them as well. Each has a portrait of a serial killer, along with their name and some facts about them. Each suit is dedicated to a category, such as spades, which are unsolved, and clovers, which are the most prolific.
Each one is done with brushpen, then scanned onto a computer and edited with Photoshop. I then used Adobe Illustrator to create the layout.
