Ganjifa Playing cards!

Harini Chandrasekar

I'm pretty excited to share this project with you guys! A collaborative effort with a group of dear old friends, I created the back illustration inspired by Mughal marble inlay as seen in the Taj Mahal- Arguably, India's most iconic monument. The wonderfully festive packaging effort as well as the pictures are courtesy the company Original Copy. The idea for these circular playing cards was sparked by the craft of ‘GANJIFA’ or traditional playing cards introduced to India by the Mughals.
