Graphic design student Kayleigh Freshmen created this set of playing cards as a promotional piece to help her secure employment in her field. The concept of famous women throughout history began as a website project and then extended to this printed promotional piece. Kayleigh illustrated all 52 famous women to complete the card set. She also designed the front and back of the playing cards for the project. Having fun with the idea, Kayleigh made herself the “joker” as a wild card that includes her contact info. Kayleigh had the cards printed through moo.com as she found it was less expensive than ordering actual playing cards.
Kayleigh is an Endicott College senior and she has already accepted a job offer in the design industry!
