Kickstarter: 3 Questions with Fabian Kargl of {braces} Playing Cards

Just launched on Kickstarter, {braces} Playing Cards are generatively designed, modern and minimalistic cards in unconventional colors conceptualized by Fabian Kargl, a 22-years old communication design student.

Fabian is pretty new to the world of playing cards but his love for playing cards along with his studies makes it seem like the only natural progression to get his own design printed on a deck. Crafted for cardistry, the custom faces will give a visual edge to your card flourishes.

Before the launch of the Kickstarter campaign, we sat down with Fabian for a quick Q&A on the {braces} deck.

What is your inspiration behind the {braces} Playing Cards How did you come up with the idea?
Over the last few years, generative design (which means design created with the help of computer algorithms or in other words designing using code instead of pen and paper) became a big influence on me. I really like the workflow of providing a framework for the program to create something a human could never come up with. By developing different styles each suit got its own color and pattern. The abstract and unique aesthetics of generative design seemed to fit perfectly for a modern deck of playing cards.

We first noticed the deck on Instagram. What do you think of the playing card community in terms of the feedback and support that you’ve been getting so far?
It’s really an amazing community! So far I got a lot of positive feedback on the deck and also lots of valuable advice. Even though I was completely new to the community, everybody was very friendly and extremely supporting.

Finally, what are your favorite playing card decks?
That is really hard to pick considering all the great designs that are out there. However, I must say I really like the style and the colorful design of the Abstract playing cards.

If you want to support Fabian and {braces} Playing Cards, head to Kickstarter here! Pledge starts at $11 and the deck will be printed by Cartamundi.
