About

Design

EDIT: So one question that I've been getting from people who helped me review this project is what exactly makes it good for flourishes? Well the stripe on the back is designed so that, in theory, a spread would show only a swath of white and a spin would show a circle of black (or red). Basically it creates optical illusions and falls in line with the artistic origins of the design.

Minimalism is the big word in Modern Art right now. Angular is a design that has been carefully crafted to reflect the here and now. The pip and back designs of Angular are mathematically designed using 30, 45, and 60 degree angles to create an appealing image as well as giving off the minimalism vibe. The sharp new pips implemented in Angular make a bold artistic statement and reflect their minimalist origin.

The Angular backs is reminiscent of many modern art pieces and features a thick black stripe centered and angled at 45 degrees that is 1/3 of the height of the card.

To reflect the two colors that are traditionally represented in playing cards there will also be a LIMITED EDITION red back version.

The faces of Angular are elegant, stylish, and symmetrical. The symmetry of the faces makes for beautiful spins. The location of the indicators (A, K, Q, J, 2-10) provide flexibility during flourishes as the cards won't be revealed by flashing the bottom card a little.

Risks and challenges

The main challenge of this project is actually getting it funded. Printing custom decks through the United States Playing Card Company is very expensive and that is why I'm asking for your help in this KickStarter Campaign.

EDIT: I won't be going to Germany this summer so once it's funded it's ready to go!
Once the project is funded everything should be ready to go, I'll be able to place the order and your cards will be delivered to you by August 2016 if not sooner if everything goes to plan. There is the slight possibility that I may be out of the country for a project in Germany until early August, if that possibility arises, it may not be until September that you receive your rewards, rest assured that I will do my best to deliver rewards as soon as I get back if that is the case.
