Several Edges

Several Edges is a play on the four suits of a classic playing card deck. I wanted to create designs that were raw, powerful, and provocative. I went back and forth with countless ideas but was never satisfied with a solid design. I played with many concepts for what the final characters would represent. The heart suit represents religious beliefs; the diamond suit represents advancing technology and wealth; the spade suit represents violence and sensual strength; the club suit represents gluttony and imbalance.
