Light Roast Playing Cards is an all-new playing cards project started by an American designer Siavash Mortazavi and Expert Playing Cards Company. The most distinctive design element of these Light Roast playing cards is that they stick to basic geometry and avoid curves. Moreover, to introduce these cards to the world, their designer has recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter with a goal to raise a sum of US$ 4,200.
“By avoiding curves, we are introducing new modern-looking suit symbols (pips). These cards minimize facial features to the barest possible to provide an abstract look and feel. We have also changed the traditional layout of number cards, which gives an animation effect, when the cards are flipped through,” said Siavash Mortazavi, while introducing this project to the Kickstarter community. “I own a growing collection of playing cards, and I believe that these cards will give a new life to the classic card games,” he added.
The Kickstarter Campaign is located on the web at:
www.kickstarter.com/projects/imaginative-monkey/light-roast-playing-cards and backers from around the world can become a part of this project by making generous pledges and donations. All funds raised through this Kickstarter campaign will play a major role in the production of these cards and this campaign offers a wide range of rewards for the backers including a deck of these cards with worldwide shipping.
