Digital Abstracts (Barcelona, Spain) is an online platform which provides readers with a blend of design oriented content since 2000. They handpick and thoroughly edit their publications to deliver creativity and innovation through news, current trends, products, professional opinions, interviews, etc.
They managed their first playing card project in 2012. They gathered 54 different international artists under one “roof”. Each artist had to design one of the 54 cards in their distinct style and technique. As the result of their appropriate efforts, 54 different artworks were turned into playing cards and packed in one tuck case – Collective Art Project (CAP) deck, “Creative Cards”, was produced.
Their new playing card project was named “Playing Arts”. It was successfully funded on Kickstarter (November 10, 2013). The new appealing name, but the old tested approach. And DA did it again. “Playing Arts” CAP deck #1 was produced and delivered to its backers.
