Card Experiment: Bicycle Dream Playing Cards

Card Experiment, the producer of Bicycle Asura playing cards, Babel playing cards, Utopia Playing Cards, Anicca playing cards, is going to produce its new decks of playing cards – Bicycle Dream Playing Cards: Gold and Silver Editions. It opens a pre-order period on its site (expected delivery date: mid-December).

“The phantasmagoric nature of the Sandman’s realm permeates the design of the Dream deck. The blurring of boundaries between the real and the imaginary is captured by clever blending of contrasting elements which seems, at the same time, both natural and unnatural. Dreams are mysterious. Dreams are fantastical. Dreams have infinite possibilities.” ~ Card Experiment

These decks are the result of a collaboration between Card Experiment and Chatchanok Wongvachara (Bangkok, Thailand). She is an artist and musician, also known as Pink (no, she isn’t an American singer). The lady grew up in an artistic family, and was given a lot of guidance by her father and her brother. Chatchanok enjoys to combine illustration elements with photography, for instance, or employ handicraft techniques in her work.

Card Experiment: Utopia Playing Cards

Card Experiment (Bicycle Asura Playing CardsBabel Playing Cards) is going to release its third deck on their site – Utopia Playing Cards

Utopia: A seemingly perfect and ideal place. When ideals collide, Utopia descends into Dystopia. The Utopia deck toys with the notions of loss of self and identity as well as conformity using highly structured and similar arrangements dosed with a touch of surrealistic imagery.” ~ Card Experiment

Playing card were designed by Tarin Yuangtrakul (Tab). He is an artist, illustrator, and graphic designer from Bangkok, Thailand. His illustration style is rough and abrasive in the most beautiful, intricate way. Full of movement, emotion and aggressive lines, Tarin creates his renderings combining both traditional and digital media.

  • Metallic inks;
