The process for creating the 2018-2019 trading cards was a long one. Initially, there were three theme proposals- Instagram, Enamel Pins, and Wikipedia. I made mock-up for each of these (see below). However, none of these options really fit in with the current state of the Gould library and its reference librarians. Choosing a theme was difficult because the library is in the process of searching for new reference librarians, whose attitudes and input would be blatantly missing from any themed trading cards. So, I made these theme-less trading cards with bright colors and bold text.

Each reference librarian gave input about which colors they wanted for their card.
