Deck View: NoMad Playing Cards



Elegance. Vintage. Architecture.

Designed by Chad Michael and produced in collaboration with The NoMad Hotel, New York City and the cool wizards at theory11. Back in the 19th century, The NoMad District of New York was the meeting place of the era’s elite - from Oscar Wilde to Charles Dickens, Mark Twain to Nikola Tesla. Theory11's vision was to create a deck of cards that would serve as a monument to The NoMad.

The result is a timeless blend of beauty and elegance. The deck features a custom vintage design, reimagined Jokers, a gold foiled embossed tuck case - and a stamp bearing the seal of The State of New York. NoMad Playing Cards were inspired by actual architectural elements of The NoMad Hotel. From the fireplace in the lower level to the hotel’s signature phrase: “Made Nice". The back design, when rotated laterally, forms the shape of an eye - a gentle nod to the Latin phrase at the top and bottom of each card: "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." Even the interior of the box has a pattern branded with The NoMad logo.

Also, authentic distressed faces and realistic textures make the cards look like they’ve been passed down from generation to generation. Incredible!
