Hollow Per Suit (A Deck of Playing Cards)

Hi Kickstarter! I'm a Freelance Graphic Designer, and I like Playing Cards.  I've created many things as a designer, but I'm really excited to bring you my own style of cards in this deck, Hollow Per Suit.  I'm excited because from my perspective, Playing Cards are a unique design medium.  They are crafted with the utmost care so they can be stacked, shuffled, fanned, flipped, slapped, swiped, grabbed, and gaurded over and over again.  

Now, I have the chance to show you what I think playing cards should look like.

Each card is carefully crafted. I designed these cards to be used and admired.  The hollowed out symbols for each suit help to create a fun and unique feel to these cards.  Every card is layed out piece by piece to create a playful, dynamic, elegant, and highly usable design that everyone can enjoy.

At this point, all of the number cards are ready for the printer.  I'm in the process of putting together the face cards, and I'll update you as I complete them over the next few weeks.  I can't wait to show you this deck in it's entirety.

Challenges

My biggest challenge has been finding a way to promote the project. Tell everyone about this project! I really want get these cards in your hand, so if you aren't backing me, please do, but more importantly, share this project on Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media you like, so your playing-card-hoarding friends can enjoy my cards.

Closing

This project has been a lot of fun.  I love creating elegant designs, and I hope you take this chance to experience them. I've really enjoyed creating these cards for you, and I know you'll enjoy playing with them!
