I also like the circuit design in the indices under the pip. Still, something is lacking on these I think, it might be as simple as you just need to come up with really awesome court cards that fit the theme. Electronic pioneer figures is an obvious choice, but I think playing off standard courts a bit and modifying them to fit would be quite fun. Holding solder gun, misc components, hard drives, cables...wearing lab coats, geek tshirts, nerd ties, etc. Maybe even 16 bit art style, I would even forgive conversion to ASCII art with color added. Although I think fully custom courts in the standard style made to fit the theme is best here.
Currently I'm looking at 2 designs - on a red/black on white (the first concept above), the second a more realistic circuitboard with gold and silver circuits on green background. I've mocked up a quick test of the gold and silver - any thoughts? (just imagine the gold is a heart or diamond)
As for the first design - I agree there is something missing. I'll try it with a full circuit background with bold black and red circuit pips and see how that looks - I imagine that will improve it significantly!
