Good Cards Gone Bad: Twisted Cards for Twisted People is the project of photographer Kaos Beauty Klinik (you’ll need to join the Model Mayhem site to view his full work). He creates tantalizing, twisted images of intricate tattoos, mysterious women, and ghostly landscapes. Much of his work is R-rated and frankly erotic, so be warned. The elegant, eclectic images are printed on high quality photographic stock, then attached with photo corners to deckle-edged cards.
Good Cards Gone Bad needed a responsive e-commerce website that would allow the photographer to sell his handcrafted cards on all platforms. He wanted a site that was elegant and sensuous, and allowed for both his mainstream and R-rated work. In addition, he wanted to incorporate a blog as part of his marketing plan.
I customized a WordPress theme to add e-commerce capability and special type styling. Working with the photographer, I wrote the text on the site, highlighting the portraiture and eerie landscapes. I also sourced and managed a developer to add some specific elements of code. Click here for a closer view. Click here to go to the website.
Between launch in September 2019 and February 2020, Good Cards Gone Bad received commissions for more than 260 cards.
