About this project

 

THE STORY OF ENLIVEN

My life changed 8 years ago. That is when I discovered the art of magic. I learned my first card trick, and I was hooked. I was obsessed with the art form. I kept practicing to improve myself as a performer. The next thing I remembered is I was a junior magician member (now currently an adult member) at the Academy of Magical Arts, or as well known as the Magic Castle.

Around the same time, I had an opportunity to host and perform my very own magic show in my beloved hometown Bangkok, Thailand. The event planted a seed of my dream. A year later, I had a magic show in the very same place. My show is called Enliven.

Enliven is my dream. It is not just a magic show. I intend to have Enliven as a brand, a brand that produces playing cards and magic tricks. One day, I hope to make my dream come true, and this playing card project is my first huge step to achieving it.

THE CARDS' STORY: INSPIRE

Bringing back my memories, the first deck of cards that I owned was the Black Tiger from Ellusionist. I thought it was the coolest thing I've ever had. As a beginner magician at the time, I always practice card tricks and I always seek to learn new card tricks. Fast forward to a few years later, the idea struck. I wanted to have a deck of cards that symbolizes myself.

From  hand-drawn designs to illustrations, I've created prototypes after prototypes. It's a slow process that took years to finalize. They're years of self-taught designing skills, years of studying other popular playing cards, and years of observing playing cards crowd funding projects. As time goes by, everything grows including playing cards market. More and more decks are produced, more creators have their cards designs, and we even have more distributors. And now I am ready to show the world my very own deck, the Enliven: Inspire Playing Cards V.I

THE DECK

These playing cards will be printed with a premium quality by Expert Playing Card Company. They've produced a lot of decent quality decks (I didn't get paid to say this) and I believe this choice will make the shipping process much easier for me.

The deck is designed with a concept of two words: simplicity and elegance. I love simple designs and there are many beautiful decks that have simple art work such as, the Kings, Revolution, Nocs, Fontaines, Wynn Casino, and so much more. They somehow inspired me to create Enliven decks as you are witnessing right now.

 WHAT IS MAGIC PACKAGE?

You may have noticed in your pledge options that there is a Magic Package included by spending 3 more dollars. What's in it? Well it's something that will add on to your gaff card that's included in your deck. You'll get a special file for download and a video instruction that tells you everything you need to know about it.

Risks and challenges

This is my first time releasing a deck of cards and creating a Kickstarter campaign. I have zero experience doing this other than observing and studying how everything works.

The designs are done; however, I'm still open to any opinions and suggestions.

Now the next big step is to get this project successfully funded. So by spreading your words to let others know that this deck exist will be a tremendous help. I hope that I will able to deliver playing cards that a lot of people will love, and I hope to make it real by the end of the year.
