Soccer Trading Cards

This is a packaging project for the Kickstarter based company Candy Lab Toys. Their toys combine modern design with glamorous mid-century muscle car aesthetics. Also, as wooden toys, these cars recall a simpler time before plastic toys came into the scene. I felt like these were all noble reasons, so I wanted the packaging to evoke all of this from the get go. The diagonal lines that run all over the package are meant to evoke speed and motion. The use of illustration instead of showing the actual car through clear plastic is a play on how toys were made to stimulate the imagination and creativity of children instead of zoning them out as many do today. The kraft backdrop highlights the accent color to create an elegant contrast. Finally, the design of the cardboard box makes an emphasis on the ideal of children using their imagination to create their own stories.

The Concept

This project was inspired by one of my favorite things in the world, soccer. This series of cards show every player in the FC Barcelona squad along with stats for the 2015/2016 season and an overall rating of the player in their position.
