My name is Olly and I'm a student in Falmouth, UK.
I first started this deck as a personal project to pass the time and what started as a hobby soon became an obsession. I wanted to make a deck that wasn't just pretty to look at but also had added twists to make the deck more interesting and unique.
I have spent countless hours working on every detail of this deck, with the aim to make something special that people will enjoy and love having in their homes.
CONTOURS is a completely custom deck of playing cards with every detail of every face and back being uniquely designed entirely using the tracking pad on my laptop.
I have been working on this deck for a long time and have loved every second of it. I really want to share this deck with everyone and hopefully with your help I can.
If this project is successful I want to focus on making the best quality deck possible and so the more that is raised the better quality the deck will be! The deck used in the photos is a one off prototype but I plan to use the Legends Playing Card Company to print my deck as they have a great history of beautiful and high quality decks.
I want to keep this deck limited so after this Kickstarter project is over no other deck will be printed, the only way to get it is through this project.
I wanted the back to be something that you can look at for hours, following the intertwining lines.
The eye in the corner is there to peer into the card you have in front of you to watch over it and make sure no one else sees.
The court cards are all based on the classic Bicycle Playing Card design to keep the recognisable feel when playing. Although I wanted to keep certain similarities, there are also certain clues hidden throughout the court cards to show the secret relationships between them all.
The court cards are all designed to have their own secrets of love and betrayal. Missing pieces of jewellery showing up on unlikely suitors, matching amulets between different suits and stolen tokens all give clues to the hidden affairs and masked hatred between the courts relationships.
The Tuck Box
The Tuck Box lid has a peering eye that blinks open when you open it to remind you you are always being watched so no peeking at other peoples cards.
Risks and challenges
The main challenge will be shipping out all of the decks to you as efficiently as possible without any delays. Fortunately I have a team of people ready to help me package all of the decks and ship them off but it does not mean its gonna be easy! If my campaign is successful I will make it my top priority through the next few months to get your pledge to you on time, safe and sound.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
