Collectors have gone digital. Because of a recent app, Quidd, trading cards are no longer confined to shoe boxes under the bed. Now they are conveniently stashed on phones, ready to be pulled up and traded from any spot with internet connection. Quidd launched their trading app May 2016. The start-up creates digital trading cards, stickers, and 3-D Pop! figures for fan bases of shows such as Star Trek, Bob’s Burgers, and Breaking Bad to name a few.
A variety of themed card sets are created for each licensed brand. I helped design Quidd’s line of trading cards for TV series Firefly, a space western with nods to asian culture. The show gained a cult following despite being discontinued after a single season. Below are a few favorite card templates that I created.
