We are a product company that manufactures our own designs. All our products are aviation inspired so we decide to have some fun and design the artwork for a complete set of playing cards. We enjoy playing cards like everyone else and like all products we believe playing cards should be well designed. Here's our version and we hope you enjoy.
These deck of cards will have artwork of modern jets and aircraft. The inspiration was to create a deck of cards unlike other cards, our Kings and Queens are B-2 Bomber and SR-71. The Jokers are the A-10 and F-22.
AIR SQUADRON EDITION
The playing cards are designed by LIOE Design and printed on Bicycle grade stock by the United States Playing Card Company. Made in the United States. One deck has 56 uniquely designed playing cards plus custom tuck box and seal.
Aces are the main attractions, inspired by patterns formed in kaleidoscopes. The F-117, F-14, Osprey and X-29 have beautiful lines we wanted to showcase, when combining the 2 aircraft shapes together it makes up a new interesting shape of its own.
JOKERS OF THE SKY
Joker #1 is the A-10, has a legendary 30mm Gatling-type auto cannon that makes a very distinct sound on the battlefield. When the A-10 shows up for air support it is no joke.
Joker #2 is the F-22 stealth fighter. The F-22 has many trick up its sleeve, one of them is taking on 5 or more F-15's in training exercises and wining.
We wanted to go against the conventional suits representing numbers. Instead we wanted to find modern day aircraft's that would look close to the suits shape. For the spade we chose the F-117, the hearts is the F-14, clover is the Osprey and the diamonds is the X-29. We wanted to make the planes look like they are flying in formation, with exception of the number 2 card all the aircraft are flying in the same direction. Underneath the planes are geometric line patterns representing them flying over abstract topographical landscape.
Risks and challenges
The United States Playing Card Company will producing our playing cards and one of the challenges will be proofing the artwork before full production. We want to make sure the artworks colors and resolution will be on point. It helps that USPCC is a reputable company in the playing card industry and we will work closely with them to produce these playing cards to the highest quality. Another challenge will be funding this project, without your support there will be no production.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
