Save the Bees

As the go-to designer for Ellusionist, Oban works with a team of highly skilled magicians and product creators. This team is constantly reinventing an ancient tradition and he is proud to be a member of this creative cohort.

Killer Bees and Bumble Bees were an exciting project with the aim of raising awareness of and support for the diminishing bee population.

So far these playing cards have raised over $30,000 for the cause.

Bumble bees show a classical Victorian bee keeper, rife with bee puns. All art work was hand-drawn and lettered, with vintage design features.

Killer Bees were inspired by genetic modification and mad science. The design is angular and minimal. We choose gold foil for the box and created custom stylised playing card pips and court cards.
