MEDITATION CARDS - Art Direction, Design & Illustration


Tony G is a yoga instructor in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA. He teaches internationally & has recently recorded a series of instructional videos to be released in 2016. The ‘Elemental Cards’ deck is intended to support Tony’s system of instructing yoga asana in relation to the five elements. 

Taking visual inspiration from Asian, North African & North American Indian cultures the cards communicate Tony’s organizational system of buddhist spiritualism using imagery and graphics of palmistry, antique medical textbooks & ancient manuscripts. The completed project is a fresh modern aesthetic drawn from historic references.

Printed digital offset on the HP Indigo 10000, the original printing of 500 cards sold out in little over a month and a new, larger, laminated version was re-designed & printed in an edition of 500.


The project has been included in the Typecraft Design Library and was exhibited at Pushing the Press at the A+D Museum of Los Angeles.
