The Triple Vision is a custom deck of playing cards to be launched on Kickstarter. It’s design was inspired by classic 3D comics and comes with a set of old school 3D anaglyphic glasses (the ones with red and blue lenses). According to Jared from One Widow Playing Cards,
We’d been talking about creating a new deck of cards for a while now and the first thing that came to mind was ‘let’s make it 3D’. Memories of old 3D comics and cereal box promotions all came pouring in at once – the red and blue paper glasses, that classic comic book illustration style. We wanted to make a deck the was fun and unique.
To ensure that the One Widow team can achieve their goal, they started researching 3D anaglyphic illustrations – past and present.
We stumbled upon a recent 3D comic ‘MADMAN In Your Face 3D Special’. This was a great find for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it hit that sweet spot of bringing our childhood memories of 3D into the present. The illustrations in it tipped the hat to that old school look we had grown up coming to love.
While the designs work well with the 3D glasses it was important for the designer to make them interesting and easy on the eye with and without the glasses. Jared continued,
After many prototypes this lead us to a more subtle 3D effect that looks great for cardistry, magic and playing games. We really think the end result is something unique and makes a great deck of cards.
The deck will be printed by the United States Playing Card company, and there will be a number of additional items/add-ons including T-Shirts, Posters, 3D glasses and more. Also, there will be a second alternative design that will be unlocked once the project hit their set stretched goals. As a pair, the decks will really complement each other and the theme.
