About this project

Vända - playing cards redesigned

$27,553

742

The Vända deck has been in the works for several months now and I've addressed every tiny detail involved in redesigning a deck of playing cards from scratch. The result is a simply stunning card deck that handles smoothly and boldly stands out from any playing cards you've seen before.

It is now available in both CRIMSON EDITION (white deck) and GOLDEN EDITION (black deck). The GOLDEN EDITION will be printed will gold and silver metallic inks and is limited to 2500 decks only so it may not be available once this project ends!

the highlights:

  • completely innovative deck design
  • simple, sleek, bold, and sexy back design
  • simple corner symbols (combined card value / suit pip)
  • all cards are rotationally-symmetrical (a feature that's completely unique to vända deck)
  • unique new rotationally-symmetrical center pip symbols for hearts, spades, and clubs
  • bold graphic ace designs
  • unique diamond-shaped pip layout grid
  • typographic court cards
  • Bicycle card stock (printed by US playing card company, maker of Bicycle and Bee brands)

magician features:

  • two double-backed cards (red and purple back designs) for flashy color changes
  • 2 gimmick card (13 of diamonds, Ace of Spades with blank center)
  • plenty of white space on all cards – perfect for signing chosen cards (and visible to an audience)
  • smooth color change effect to/from adjoining number cards (2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9, 8-10)
  • color change effect from ace of spades to back design
  • ‘magic’ air-cushioned finish for easy handling and flourishing

REWARDS

FAQ

  • Yes, you can use the Vända deck like any other deck of cards, for poker, bridge, hearts, go fish, gin, or any other card game you like to play - it has all the same cards as a regular deck, except for the jokers (but you can use the double-backed color cards as jokers if you need).
