The first step was to create a unique back design, one that not only had an intricately beautiful design but one that both appealed aesthetically and sentimentally. It had to be thought provoking, and had to evoke a certain connotation. From the first sketches to the end product, it slowly developed its own flair, and this continues throughout the deck!
The back design is one way; it is perhaps one of, if not, the most unobtrusive and functional major one-way design. This allows for a unique story and symbolism to be evoked; metaphors of life and mortality, thievery, lies, deceit, power, mysticism, struggle, and love.
The court cards are all completely custom, illustrated from scratch. The themes that you see on the back design are seen here. You may even start to see a story forming as you look through them. We have created something different. We have done away with borders to free the courts – to make use of the space and to make them prominent characters. They’ve got so much personality!
