Kickstarter: 3 Questions with Carbon Creations Card Company

Oink Oink playing cards is the first deck designed by the Carbon Creations Card Company team. The team wanted to create a fun and simple deck of cards and decided on a simplistic but rather cute and funny pig design in eye-catching pink.

Carbon Creations Card Company (CCCC) consists of two people, Daniel Martensson who is a cardist, and magician/cardist Curtis Lee. They both share a passion and love for playing cards and as cardists and magician, they both feel that a deck is an everyday carry and an essential for performance.

With Oink Oink, the team wanted to create an eye-catching deck with minimalist design. Hence, contrasting light/dark pink colorway and the centre design element on the card back makes displays, spins and isolations look exceptionally well! The face cards are pretty much standard with updated color palette to match the theme. This is suitable for the magician who wants to maintain familiarity when performing.

We had a chat with the CCCC team about the inspiration behind Oink Oink Playing Cards, support from the community and his favorite flourish and cardistry deck.

What is your inspiration behind the Oink Oink Playing Cards? How did you come up with the idea? How did you end up collaborating with Hanson Chien Production Co.?
Curtis: It was actually Daniel who came up with the idea. He was eating a protein bar and the wrapper happened to be pink. And guess what has protein and is pink? Pigs! As for our choice of printing with Hanson Chien, they produce some of the cheapest and best feeling decks ever. They also have a fulfillment service of their own, so that cuts down on the costs of our Kickstarter a bit.

We first noticed Oink Oink Playing Cards on Instagram. What do you think of the community in terms of the feedback and support that you’ve been getting so far?
Curtis: We think that the community has been very supportive so far. They've been willing to take pictures, do renders and share our posts without hesitation.

Finally, what are your favorite flourish and/or playing card decks?
Daniel: My favorite flourish to perform Mantra and Phaesed, while my favorite flourish to watch is the Turbo Ring by Noel Heath and Mocking God. My favorite deck has to either be the Jaspas deck Primeval edition or the Oink Oink playing cards, now available on Kickstarter.

Curtis: My favorite flourish would happen to be Golden Eagle Snatches Kid, it's a relatively simple flourish, but it still looks so good. My favorite deck? Oof, that's a hard question, I like a lot of decks, but for now, the Hanamis by Hunkydory and Vice by Occupied x Takyon.
