‘Solidarity’ Playing Cards – Launched on Kickstarter – 550% funded with 7 days to go
It has been a tough couple of years. We wanted to create a project that pays tribute to the people who have achieved extraordinary things in exceptionally difficult circumstances. And so, Intertype Studio collaborated with Playing card specialist Riffle Shuffle to create this deck.
We hope that people gift the cards to people they know who have overcome diversity in difficult times. We want this deck to be a marker of their strength and determination. As the world returns to a ‘new normal’ we believe that solidarity is required with everyone in society – regardless of their background or their preferences.
Becoming a parent is difficult at the best of times, but during lockdown it got a whole lot tougher. As did studying for a degree in isolation. Many different vocation became unfathomably difficult. But, we got through it and we will come back stronger.
We created this deck as a mark of respect to a whole cross section of society. The researchers and scientists who found a vaccine. The soldiers who volunteered to run testing centres. Fire fighters who battled the worse forest fires for generations. Protestors who fought for their basic human rights to be recognised. 2020 – you were a tea trial. A trial that was overcome by a host of amazing and determined people regardless of their backgrounds or preferences.
If you’d like to support the project, head to Kickstarter and search for ‘solidarity’. The project is over 550% funded with 7 days to go, which means that we are also releasing ‘Stretch goal’ editions: ‘Solidarity’ gold and silver medal foil editions – which feature silver and gold cold foil backs respectively. Limited to 1,299 decks for each edition.
The cards themselves are printed by the USPCC in America – the finest playing card manufacturer in the world, which means that they are Casino Quality.
