In order to maintain some cohesion between the two decks we wanted to include the same minimal suite and picture card icons design. This gave us a clear launch pad for the DCM deck.
The original deck was quite bright, utilising the distinctive Fusion orange and a number of other secondary brand colours. For this more relaxed deck we felt a more muted palette with pops of the bright colours would tie in with the chilled evening conversations that Fusion hopes this deck will provoke.
The limited palette was then paired with a clean geometric pattern, which utilised some of the forms used in the suite icons and helped to evoke the desired aesthetic of a traditional card deck. All in all this helped the deck to sit happily alongside other playing card decks and look less like a specific learning resource.
