It’s not every day a graphic designer has the opportunity to collaborate with an amazing, compassionate and soulful person to help them bring their passion project to life.
Passion projects are BIG ideas coming to life, and they often bubble away in the unconscious for many years before becoming fully realised.
This particular passion project is a collaboration between the creator, the artist and the writer. The designer entered the equation as the fourth piece of the creative jigsaw – a relatively crucial element in order to develop the visual into a tangible product!
In this story, the big idea is The Sensual Seed Oracle Card Deck – the third baby of Christine Ford, the Creator. The artist is the exceptionally talented Amanda Kennedy. And the writer is the incredibly intuitive Ankita Singh.
The Sensual Seed Oracle Card Deck is a powerful tool to connect with that inner voice of the Divine Feminine within, who knows everything, and always has the perfect guidance.
Each card in this deck comes with a vivid hand-painted image in acrylic colour to inspire and uplift your mood. As you connect with the card image, and allow yourself to be inspired by its theme, you will discover that the accompanying channeled message resonates with the issue or question you have in mind.
About the Creative Collaboration
The Sensual Seed creative journey started with the development of the brand identity and social media graphics. And then came the more detailed aspects of the project: the Oracle Card design & layout, booklet layout, box design, email marketing design & support, social media strategy, website refinement and the launch party!
It is definitely worth noting that my Reiki Master/Teacher experience played a huge part in Christine selecting me as the preferred design partner to bring Sensual Seed to life.
Three Oracle Card designs were developed and Christine selected her preferred option:
the single white word at the top of the card with a gold line border framing the image and a gold swash in the place where we added the contemplative prose.
Simplicity is the key throughout the project; so we continued the brand styling to the back of the card by retaining the pink/red hue in the design, and making the logo the focus.
The layout of the 44 Oracle Cards and the booklet was the most patient stage of the project. Largely because the energy of each card flowed while I was designing them, and a few breaks were necessary to remain focussed!
I’m not sure if a graphic designer without energy healing experience would have felt the same way during this step, but it was certainly the most amazing way to connect with each card’s energy.
I enjoyed every aspect of this project and feel as though lifelong connections are forged with Christine. Yes, we had our creative challenges as any epic passion project would, but we navigated these fleeting moments with grace by trusting that the highest good would always be the outcome.
