Project Type: Promotional Trading Card Packs

BOSE is the Official Sound of the NFL. To help promote their product line of headphones, they developed a promotion that featured the headphones on trading cards with photos on the front and the product specifications on the back. Some of the bonus cards in the packs included some foil cards and a lenticular trading card that featured Russell Wilson and JJ Watt. As you move the card, the image changes from one Pro Bowl NFL star to the other.

Mattel Hot Wheels Trading Cards

Project Type: Sports Trading Cards

Mattel looked to Creative Instinct with its vast experience within NASCAR to design their in-pack trading cards. The cards were designed to best display the NASCAR drivers due to the fact that a portion of the card would always be covered by the die cast vehicle.

NASCAR Press Pass Legends

Project Type: Sports Event Trading Cards

Press Pass looked to CI for the design and production of their inaugural product that focused on the history of NASCAR. The product needed to convey the rich history of racing but have a modern feel. The nostalgic look of the product was enhanced through the usage of intricate production techniques. The photography on the trading cards were framed by interlocking foil stamps in two different colors. A spot gloss varnish was used on the photo and a dull varnish was used for the black borders. The combination of these elements created the nostalgic feel in a modern way. The packaging featured a gloss varnish for the driver photos, a dull varnish for the black areas and silver metallic ink for the frames and text. The product became an instant favorite with trading card collectors.
