Scotch on the Rocks
This vinyl figure of Scottish hero Jamie Fraser from “Outlander” was nicknamed “Scotch on the Rocks” by fans of the show. When designing the box, inspiration was taken from whiskey packaging - not only as a play on the figure’s nickname, but also to give a more premium look to the box. Foil effects and UV spot gloss imagery were added as a finishing touch to this piece.
Assignment: Design a box for the Jamie Fraser vinyl figure.

CZX Outlander Trading Cards
When Cryptozoic announced a premium set of Outlander trading cards under their “CZX” brand, a 3D beauty shot and web graphics were created to promote them. I also designed a 6 page checklist for collectors to reference which cards they still needed in their collection.

The Outlander Season 3 Trading Cards included several interesting chase sets, including a puzzle, and cards calling out set design and characters. Because of the significance of the main character’s print shop in season 3, the cards were designed to look hand made or like old prints.
Assignment: Design a set of trading cards based on Outlander Season 3, including base cards and chase sets.
Inspiration: 18th and 19th century printing

BASE and CHASE
Base cards used a subdued banner at the bottom, and came in 3 variants: no foil, a gold foil stamp, and a red foil stamp with crash numbering. Because the demographic for these cards was a more mature group than our other trading card products, minimal foil effects were used and frames were kept simple.
The chase cards, below, were more heavily designed, and were meant to look as if they were printed in the main character’s print shop.
