I had a concern about the headers on the cards. I wasn’t happy with the font, it made the card too uniform. So, I started searching for a more solid font that was similar in theme to the rest of the card. Took a while but I settled on one. Here’s the new and as far as I can tell (hopefully) final artwork for the layout/content of the cards.

A couple more updates in the development of my card game. I’ve resettled on the name “Oh No, Zambies!” since the title “Zambies” was already taken. I was debating changing zambies out completely but it’s not an original name but rather a slang term in the gaming community and meshes well with the tone of the game so I’m going to keep it in.

Here is the 99% finished artwork for the cards in the deck:

I want to stay open about the whole process of the design phase. So, I’m going to be uploading artwork as I complete it. Also, I need to change the name “Zambies” to something else. Despite it not showing up in a Google search, it turns out there is an relativly unknown game called Zambies. So back to coming up with ideas for names.

Here’s the first completed card: This is the raw design, with bleed and slug areas. The cards will be a slight white border.
