Illustration, packaging engineering, and print design for both playing both Chinese and American versions of mahjong. 
The illustrations and patterns within the decks are heavily inspired by traditional patterns in Chinese architecture, paintings, and ceramics, while the flip-top package construction is modeled off vintage cigarette cartons. The intention was to create a beautiful travel deck for seasoned mahjong players, but also create distinct enough suits through unique background patterns and color coding for beginners to get the hang of the game easily. The sparrow motif on the cards backs and packaging are a reference to the earliest known name of the game translating to sparrow.
