Mama, Papa & Little Brother were very excited: little Nathan was on his way to join the family. One day Mama was looking through her wallet and they found our 4MINIgeeks cards which she picked up at FACTS two years ago. They wanted a birth announcement to tell his story and the story of their family. In the virtual world Mama is a Sphinx and Papa is a Phoenix, Little Brother loves lions and his favourite colour is red. The whole family met up with us in Elftopia for a brainstorm in the shadows of the trees on a very hot day. They wanted a card that suited their family to a T, with custom made illustrations. Soon the concept was clear: it was going to be a mini-deck of RPG cards starring little Nathan as a mage! A deck of 3 cards: a birth announcement, an invitation to the 'baby-borrel' and a thank-you-card. Elements of their RPG characters and Little Brother would be part of the illustrations. Sketches were sent back and forward untill everything fell into place.
Meanwhile Papa had the very important task of designing the game-play: which attacks would little Nathan use, how much damage would they do and what would his defence be? Each card got carefully selected attack and defence strategies assigned. Conclusion: Nathan is undefeatable with sonic cries and a high huggablility-rate!
Mama and Papa also wanted to have little boxes for the treats (suikerbonen) with the same illustrations as the cards. Mama, Papa and Little Brother picked them up at our booth at FACTS, together with the original paintings for the baby-room.With the boxes ready and filled with goodies and the print-ready-file ready to go, the waiting game began.
On 2nd november we received a message: Nathan was born! The cards were sent of to the printers and Papa could pick them up the same day.
Congrats to the parents of Nathan!
