A year ago I discovered the Inner Compass Card Deck on Instagram. I loved the concept of picking a card to guide you through the day or simply to give you instant advice. The drawings also appealed to me, no angels or what so ever, just beautiful minimalistic illustrations that visualize the meaning of the cards.
Only a few days later I bought myself a card deck and started using them. Not only for personal occasions, but also during my workshops and at The Gatherists. I found out that many people where curious about picking one and inspired by the meaning. The first time I met founder Neel van Lierop I felt connected in so many ways and a new friendship was there. You can imagine how thrilled I was when Neel asked me to create images for her new website!
During the photoshoot, which partially took place at the beautiful home of Annemieke Boots, the three of us collaborated as a team. We all enjoyed it very much. The goal for this photoshoot was to capture the card deck in different settings, like together with some books on the coffee table, next to your bed or on your kitchen table. The deck can be seen as something you can use every day, so why hide it in a drawer?
If you like the cards as much as I do, I recommend visting the website, the decks are available in both English and Dutch.
