After an outstanding initial project with Maria, we commissioned her for a larger project consisting of 8 illustrations. I could not possibly be more impressed or more happy with the process! The artwork itself is visually stunning, and Maria consistently had excellent creative ideas to effectively convey our key concepts. She was also super responsive and positive to requests for small updates as we worked towards finalizing each design. If you have the chance to work with Maria, you absolutely should!
Did an amazing job and was in contact with me the whole time. Great artist.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Game of Energy is a board game that puts all of the world's energy industries together, requiring each player to find a way to generate enough energy to avoid the coming energy crisis, but to do so in an environmentally-conscious manner. All the stats in the game are based on real-life, so it provides for some interesting gameplay.
The game is a "euro game" and will target gamers that regularly purchase more higher-end board games for $59+. Age of players will be ages 14 and up, though the target market is 18-44. Majority of customers will be in the US, but ~40% are elsewhere, as well.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
This contest is for the illustration component of the Captains of Industry cards for the Game of Energy board game. The card graphic design is already complete.
The details of this contest are contained within the attached PDF brief document that shows examples and explains examples that should be used for inspiration. There is also a mock-up of the Captains of Industry card template to be used. The Adobe Illustrator file of this card is also available for download.
This is a blind contest.
We want lots of communication.
Submit frequently so that we can discuss art direction and other potential concerns.
Be sure to submit frequently before even the first round deadline, as we want a very good idea of your finished work if we were to select you for the final round.
If you do not have certain fonts, don't worry about it since when you send me the card with illustrations inserted, they will open properly on my end. HOWEVER, if you want to tweak the graphic design of the card to better fit your illustration in some way (discussed further in the PDF brief), then be sure you have all of the proper fonts. I can send you the ones you are missing if you cannot easily find them online.
Please read the attached PDF brief. But if you still have questions, feel free to ask :)
