Best crowdfunded playing cards projects of 2015

Written by Brendan Ihmig

Be it purely for the looks or to add to add to your collection, if you were looking for creative alternative playing cards the scope of crowdfunded projects 2015 would certainly not have disappointed you. From video game inspired artwork to the art and tradition of Dia de los Muertos, playing card creators and artists draw have created decks of cards to suit any persons fancy or to compliment any collectors collection. Noted this year is also the use of different materials and effects used to create truely amazing cards, these include cards with a metal appearance with a prismatic effect to lenticular lens motion designs.

I am fascinated by the creative medium that playing cards offer artists and designers and how crowdfunding platforms now allow these artists to launch their projects to connect their art and passion to a ever growing market. OUt of the dozens of really great projects I have selected the six crowdfunded playing card decks which I think were the very best of 2015.
