Customized playing cards for the historical Brannan Cottage Inn located in Calistoga, California.
When planning this deck, I set out to honor the traditional quality of playing cards with a modernized spin while utilizing BCI’s existing branding (logo and cottage icon). All details were considered including the card value numerals and custom made pips representing each suit. In exchange for traditional iconography, each face card (as well as the back and the box) showcases artwork that I created (and is currently displayed throughout the boutique hotel’s property), paying tribute to historical features of old-time California, Calistoga, and the founder Sam Brannan himself. Cards can be purchased in Sam’s General Store located onsite.
