Recently I have had a design preoccupation with triangles. As a design problem, I took on a deck of cards to see how basic the suits could be represented with a triangular grid. The geoDeck is the result of this design charrette.
The geoDeck is a simple deck. White on the front, black on the back. A triangular grid is superimposed on both sides and the card design is regulated to that grid. Each suit is made up of a series of triangles to create the most simple form of each shape.
Royal Straight - 10 of Clubs, Jack of Hearts, Queen of Clubs, King Of Diamonds, Ace of Spades
Front Detail - 10 of Hearts
Back Detail - Charcoal and Light Grey (stretch goal)
Funding will go to create the initial volume run (2,500 decks) of the cards as required by the United States Playing Card Company.
Bicycle and United States Playing Card Company are registered trademarks and their use is for representative purposes only. Royalties will be paid to USPCC and Bicycle upon production of the cards.
Risks and challenges
This is my first deck of cards, however I do intend on using the United States Playing Card Company to produce the cards and boxes for this project. I plan on completing the fulfillment by myself or with a group of friends.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
