The Coven - Playing Cards

Being a graphic designer, a small-time playing card deck collector and lover of card tricks, it has been a passion of mine to create my own deck. I wanted to produce a deck that hinted at the darkness of witchcraft while projecting a macabre & horror feel.

The Coven Playing card deck features an all female cast of court cards. The kings and Jacks wear masks while the queens reveal their faces. I've tried to keep the standard deck features such as the one eyed jacks and the suicide kings. The tuck box will also have the ravens printed on the inside as though they are trying to escape the box.

The deck will be printed by the Expert Playing Card Company.

Below are some examples of the cards and the tuck-box. The other numbered face cards follow the standard layout for positioning.

Thank you 

I would just like to thank you for taking the time to look at our project and to all those that back us you have no idea how much your support means to us.

For anyone that is a collector of cards head on over to unitedcardists.com and check out the forums. The guys there were a big help in the design development of The Coven deck, and their words of encouragement helped to push me forward. BIG thanks!

About 52Ravens.com 

52Ravens.com was set up to show the progression of the projects that are currently being worked on, to help give you a better interaction with our projects. I hope to show the development of the design and process so that there is more to engage with.

This project has been a joy to create, but all the while lots of ideas are being scribbled down for deck designs for future projects. So fingers crossed, after ‘The Coven’ the Ravens will continue to fly.

Risks and challenges

The estimated delivery should only be effected by a delay from EPCC on the printing. I will be completely transparent with the backers to ensure that they are totally aware of the progression of the decks. Fingers crossed the estimated delivery is an over exaggeration.
