In February 2019, I launched the first edition of Prototype Playing Cards on Kickstarter. With the help of Hanson Chien, cardists appeared on my videos, and everyone backed and shared my project, the cards were successfully printed and distributed into the hands of people.
Now, in May 2020, Prototype Playing Cards are back in a “Supreme Red” edition. The concept is inspired by the box logo culture as seen in Supreme.
Compared to the last design, three figures are now separated into box shapes to highlight side way tricks and motions.
Corner accents are included to accentuate fanning and any other spread techniques. In contrast with my last deck, rounded accents were replaced with square ones in order to adhere to the box logo theme.
The face design features custom hearts and diamonds, and the jokers are classic box logos.
The separation of the back design creates many distinct figures, maximizing the visual in packet cuts.
The box sports a simplistic black finish adorned with a minimalist red type-kit, box logo, and badge.
The deck will be printed with vintage stock and legendary finish. They are thinner and more flexible than the previous edition. The same stock is used by Nihilism Playing Cards.
