KADAR Playing Cards Designed by Christopher J Gould
Kadar Sees - Kadar Knows.'
Remember those weird old fortune telling machines sitting in run-down amusement arcades?
What if you put in your coin and it unerringly spat out an answer that was so relevant and accurate that it made you catch your breath?
What if you could carry this machine around in your jacket pocket?
What if you were the great oracle Kadar?
With the Kadar Deck, we have broken with tradition and produced a truly original deck of cards.
We want our cards to look like nothing that you have seen before; this is a deck of cards that instantly stands out from the 'pack'.
We draw inspiration from the diversity of design throughout the history of playing cards. From the colourful pictorial cards of the 18th Century and the cards carried across Europe by the travelling fortune tellers to those strange old fortune-telling card sets from the 50's and 60's.
Our cards look colourful and intriguing. The design of the cards reflects the strange fortune telling cabinets that lurk in the shadows of old amusement arcades, the vivid picture cards we collected as kids and the graphic style of 'Silver Age Comics'. Our cards look vibrant and entertaining, but also hint at a deeper meaning beneath the surface.
Who are these cards aimed at?
