Custom playing cards with 54 unique illustrations depicting architecture, transportation, and culture of (uncommonly known) ‘Soul Sister Cities’ Mumbai and New York. The design takes into account the structural and iconographic hierarchy required for these to be functional and visually intriguing. Each value (Ace, 2, 3...) is assigned a topic and the illustrations for them are elements placed opposite each other that are exact city equivalents. For example, the Wall St Bull is placed opposite Mumbai's Financial Area on the number 5 card to reflect that both cities are financial capitals of their own countries. This project is my attempt at bringing two cities placed on opposite sides of the earth, just a little closer.
