Kickstarter Digest #1: New Playing Card Projects Waiting for Your Support

PlayingCardCollector.NET regularly tries to cover the most interesting playing card projects (choices are always subjective) on Kickstarter and other crowdfunding platforms. Unfortunately, alternative crowdfunding platforms don’t involve a lot of playing card projects, so Kickstarter remains some type of mecca for independent playing card producers.

Traditionally the most interesting playing card projects are demonstrated on the “CROWDFUNDING DECKS” page and have their short introduction on the active pages devoted to different crowdfunding platforms. For active Kickstarter projects this is the “Kickstarter Projects” page.

Unfortunately, any changes on the above mentioned pages can’t be automatically reported unlike new posts on PlayingCardCollector.NET. So, only readers who regularly check appropriate pages can find out about new featured Kickstarter playing card projects before a separate post devoted to such project. Regular readers of PlayingCardCollector.NET know that the site tries to propose them extended interesting articles about appropriate playing card projects. It’s clear that such articles demand time and can’t be always posted at the start of each specific playing card project on Kickstarter.

This little collision has been disturbing PlayingCardCollector.NET for some time. The site always thinks about its usability, and tries to provide its readers, its main fortune, with reasonable comfort. That’s why a new category has been invented – “Kickstarter Digest”. This sort of posts should promptly cover all new Kickstarter playing card projects featured on PlayingCardCollector.NET. They will name the projects featured on the “Kickstarter Projects” page.  It doesn’t abolish extended materials 🙂

So, look below at these new projects and check the “Kickstarter Projects” page.

Playing Card Art: Playing Cards by Siobhán Gallagher

Siobhán Gallagher is a Canadian artist. She graduated with a BDes from NSCAD University in 2012. Now Siobhán does graphic design work for Penguin Group USA (readers of books printed by Philomel Books can be familiar with her illustrations), Farrar, Straus and Giroux, McDonald’s, Ronald McDonald House Atlantic,etc.

These bright positive playing cards were designed by Siobhán. The illustrator of books for kids and teens can be seen in these artworks. The playing cards are a little bit crazy, but what a nice work with colours and geometrical forms. Here you have everyday habits and hobbies of people represented through original “visual patchworks*”.

The deck hasn’t been produced commercially. She printed a few copies and then cut them down and packaged them herself as part of an illustration project. But Siobhán is always available to hear from interested people about potential cooperation.

Of course, The Queen of Hearts, the Queen of Diamonds and the Jack of Spades can find more symmetric clothes. And the Jack of Clubs can get his right hand.
