The Carbon Deck was a collaboration between designer and Elemental Playing Cards founder Nick Nisco, and designer Luke Wadey. Two editions were created for this project – Graphite Edition and Diamond Edition. Both are an allotrope of carbon. Luke Wadey designed the Graphite Edition with cardists in mind, using premium crushed Bee stock – and various design elements. It showcases a one way back design with a large hexagon embedded in the center. The hexagon is representative of the way carbon atoms bond to create graphite. It is also meant to be a focal point when performing various card flourishes. The deck also has four different fanning patterns when fanned from different sides.
