Card Gear: Flaminko



Card Gear is our monthly feature dedicated to discovering new inventory, setup, and accessories used every day by card designers, cardists, magicians and collectors. The concept originated from the popular social media site, Instagram: #passthepockets. Whenever one of these hashtags come up on the social news feed, there's always something new to discover, no matter who that person is.

Graphic designer for Flaminko Playing Cards, 22-years old Nick Zeitoun is a game and graphics programming student at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Australia. During high school, Nick used to be a card manipulator but now, mostly collects interesting and fun playing cards.

As a fan of trading card games, Nick has always enjoyed creating games and art. When not playing with or designing cards, he enjoys fencing (sport) or programming. Nick is currently funding the Burger Playing Cards project on Kickstarter. Nick's gear (Italics are Nick's comments):

+ Flaminko Business cards case (cards are UV raised but outdated).
+ Staedtler multi-colored fineliner set.
+ Flaminko stAR cARds: Augmented Reality playing card game prototype (currently in development, I carry the prototype and its accompanying app everywhere I go).
+ Notebooks (one dedicated entirely for Flaminko the other general note-taking).
+ Personal copy of Cartamundi B9 Burger deck (prototype).
+ Vanda (Gold Edition) playing cards.
+ Minim Black playing cards (not a fan of the materials but can't argue with its aesthetics).
+ Samsung s5 (switched to android from apple never looked back).
+ Wallet (flame wallet with a defective flint that hurts my finger and doesn't ignite).
+ Mechanical pencil (graduation gift from family friends, 0.5 HB lead).
