About

ADD-ONS AVAILABLE:

Add $12 to your Pledge to add a single INTERFERENCE deck (either black or white) or add $20 to add a set of two INTERFERENCE decks. Additional postage costs included. Thanks!

STRETCH GOAL ADDED: If this campaign can reach $7500, this deck will be printed with LEGENDS PCC using their Standard Finish.

I am a graphic designer based in northeast Ohio and have run five successful Kickstarter campaigns - including Interference Playing Cards and a series of decks printed by a small company. The artwork on these decks has been processed and enlarged in numerous generations by photocopiers, creating the unusual color separations and shape contours that you see. This look is inspired by independently printed band posters of the 80s and 90s. These decks feature a double-ended back design, 100% custom faces, and a custom designed tuck box.

For the court cards, I asked some friends and family to mimic the poses of the traditional figures in the cards. Kings and Jacks (and the Queen of Spades) needed to hold a vertical object of their choice in their left hands while Queens (and the Jack of Hearts) needed to hold a smaller object of their choice in whichever hand was appropriate. And the Jack of Clubs has a flower in her hat. Each model created and fashioned their own look for this project. You will have a chance to meet some of these models over the course of this campaign.

Some have asked why I didn't use the more standard court figures. The real genesis of this deck is the use of un-digitized photos on a photocopier screen. The copier distorts photos in a completely unique way. "So who the hell," you may ask, "are these people you photographed and why should I care about them?" "Who cares?" I may reply. The point is that I was able to get my brother to stick a fork in his head with his hand on his chest to model for the Suicide King. So shatap.

Finally, there are 18 different pips for each suit in this deck, with no single pip duplicated on any one card.

Let's make something weird!

Risks and challenges

This project is weirder than many others, so finding an audience can be a challenge.
