Designer Chris Cavill, an expat living and working in Canada, boldly set himself the challenge of redesigning the playing card, or at least designing them with a typographic twist.
The project has been growing on his rather enticing Kickstarter page, which already appears to have surpassed the $12,000, (£8000) target with 529 backers and 11 days to go.
Each suit has been given a different typographic treatment and the pack will be presented in this tuck box featuring gold, white and grey foils.
It appears that higher premium card stock will be used if further targets are hit.
The T-shirt designs are being determined by the popularity of suits, indicated through an on-site vote.
