About this project

Thanks for stopping here to check out my project. :)

The Project is called "The Persian Empire". I spend the past year drawing & designing this custom deck of playing card.  I had a great time creating these cards and now i need you to back me to make this project into reality!

Creating original artwork for one deck of cards means creating 56 illustrations for the deck itself as well as designing the custom look for the packaging on the box.The faces of the deck are designed based on ancient kings, queens & soldiers of Persia. Every element in the designs are related to the Persian heritage and culture and it's been drawn by hand. My goal is to give your value and enjoyment from these decks by creating work that is unique, highly playable and instantly collectable.  I hope you find them so as well and are inspired to back me. :)

Farvahar symbol was used as the Joker card. Farvahar is one of the best-known symbols of Zoroastrianism, the state religion of ancient Persia. This religious-cultural symbol was adapted by the Pahlavi dynasty to represent the Persian nation.

Zoroastrian religion has three solid foundation:

Good deeds, Good Words, Good Thoughts.

To acknowledge your kindness and help, i decided to create The Persian Empire Map bandanna & The Persian Empire t-shirt.

Note: All images are simply examples of what the final art may look like. The process of creating a deck like this is ever changing, the designs you see in the images may vary slightly on the final product.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my project. with your support all my hard work will be paid off to bring this project into reality :)

Risks and challenges

The main risk and challenges will be the production process once the project as been successfully funded. I have spent days studying other amazing Playing Card projects of other creators that have gone before me and got a solid fondation of how to go about the production process. basically the dos and don'ts. Another effective way to avoid any problems during the production is to build a solid relationship with the rep from the production company. I have a close friend working in a Playing Cards manufacturing company within the US. As soon as the funding comes, the production will start.

UPDATE 07/09/13
I've decided to create these cards with a Canadian company called Monogrammatiks. They are very efficient and produce high quality cards.

FAQ

    Kem is the only Playing Card that delivers the classic snap and feel of paper, with the unmatched durability and security features of plastic. Scuff and break resistant, Kem Cards are also completely washable.

    Last updated:
  • The cards will be produced as bridge size (narrow). Bridge size are narrower than poker size but they are easier to play with.
