Galvanic Playing Cards
One of the first playing card designs to utilize 3D elements. Each design was modeled, rendered and then manipulated.
This is my first attempt at bringing a playing card deck to life. If funding is successful, these designs will be printed by The United States Playing Card Company as a Bicycle Brand playing card deck.
*Please keep in mind the designs above are mock up designs and have not printed by The United States Playing Card Company at this time. If funding is successful, all trademarks from the uspcc will be added to the deckupon production*
.:What Makes These Cards Any Different?:.
What you see before you is the first playing card deck in which the designs were created entirely from a 3D program call Maya (the program used for most animation films today such as Shrek and How To Train A Dragon). Traditional playing cards that are on the market today are typically created only with Photoshop or Illustrator. For these designs, each element was digitally modeled, textured, rendered and then imported into Photoshop for final touch ups. Besides bringing 3D elements into cards, this is the first deck to be created from a story:
The complex back design for this playing card deck is the core or main battery source that gives the Galvanics life. What exactly are Galvanics you wonder? They are human engineered robotic intelligence create to serve one purpose: to learn the mistakes we're made after the death of our race. Our vision was that they could evolve into something we could have never imagined during our lifetime. But until now...we were uncertain of the powers they possessed...
The decks main focus point are the central orbs for both the Back Design as well as the Joker. The complex mechanism rotates throughout its entire lifespan. As they age, the rotation decreases and the light starts to dim. Once it stops, all life ceased to exist for those who retrieve its power source from the core. It's up to the Galvanics to protect it from unwanted visitors...

.:If these goals are reached then additional features will be included:.

$20,000: Metallic Ink will be added to the back designs to give that extra special something to those electric bolts (If demanded). Also, custom court cards will be added to the decks! ($15,000 features included)

.:What Will I Do With The Extra Funds?:.
All of the extra proceeds will be put towards the cost of uncut sheets for the rewards and the production value of the Theatrical Release Trailer. Now here is some great news: if this project succeeds, this deck will be known as the "hero" deck and a villain deck is in the works to follow up on the story.

After being a recent graduate from college, I took the initiative to stand above everyone else. Graphic Design and 3D work is my passion. I wanted to showcase my skills and lean towards a handful of people, hoping that I will stick out among the rest. The economy is tough right now so my goal is to set my standards high in hopes of finding a career in this field.
If goal is not reached by December 20th, the playing cards will not be produced! So only if you help out will these cards see the day of light!
