Hello, I am in the process of creating a guideline for my game's graphic designer to finalize the aesthetics of my game. All illustations have been done and I'm looking for a template that I can use to make what I have in my mind communicate clearly to the designer.

Does anyone have one of these?

Thanks!

What are you wanting to communicate to your designer exactly? Where to put everything? What kind of template? Little confused here.....

If I'm getting this right, you're looking for a template for card information?

3 things:

1) Card design should be custom to the game. I don't know what stats you're going to use, so I don't know where these stats would be best on a card.

2) Use Google look up "Magic the Gathering", "YuGiOh", "Buddy Fight", "Cardfight Vanguard" and any other card game out there for template inspiration. There are plenty of examples of "templates" out there.

3) You should have all the information you need to give to the Graphic Designer to make a template for a card...it's their job to help you find the visual look, that's why they're called "graphic designers". It shouldn't be the other way around. You have X, Y, and Z that need to be on a card and you should have an idea of what you want in a card. If you don't, there's always #2 above.

I suggest learning from those card games you like and tweak it according to your specific needs. :P

If you need any help with a card layout, I'd be happy to help - I am not a pro at photoshop myself, but have been using it for many many years. If you need me to build you a template to use, I can do that. Thanks! ;)
