Inspired by Vintage Mobility Scenes. 54 individual and optimzed cards with pictures and graphics from the past.
We are Anne and Tim, a design team from Bavaria in Germany. 3 years ago, we established our brand DAC, with a focus on vintage design and typography. Our backgrounds are art and advertising and we have always organzied own art & design projects in the past.
In the last two years we have worked very much with objects and printing. We have gained a lot of incredibly old material in form of photographs, postcards, books, etc.. A lot from private collections, but many of them found in historical image databases. All images that we use are subject to the Public Domain rights, therefore they are free to use, as there is no longer any copyright on it.
The images come from all over the world, a majority from the United States, the US had archived incredible much of things. In many other countries, as in Germany, most things have been destroyed during the Wars .. there are only few archives or collections that are accessible. We wanted for our card game dynamic and also funny motifs, while we had the idea of “mobility”. A lot of material in our stock represented the fields of motor sport and sports.
The cards should also be unique, and illustrate the past and the developments until the present time. Each color suit has an assignment, Spades are e.g. for “aviation”, clubs are standing for “Sport”. Almost all motifs on the cards have a reference for numbering, the number of swimmers, wheels or a number on a vehicle or stamp. The deck should make fun while playing and make a little bit curious, you can always detect new details constantly. Nearly All cards have been redesigned and quality optimized, most have new backgrounds or are retouched and coloured.
This deck is really special and unique, there is a blue and red Version, you can also combine them. A very nice deck for collectors. But we also wanted a very good quality for players. As we can’t estimate how many decks would be ordered, we decided to work with MPC, we checked a lot of information in many reviews on the web, like on youtube and were convinced about the very good quality. You can see a nice Review of Jonathan aka MagiCloud8 on youtube! This is a 310 grams deck French Casino Quality with Linen finish and Air Pockets in a nice Custom Tuck Box. If we unlock 10K €, we will raise up to the highest quality, the German Master Quality. We also added a small booklet with information about the deck. A seal closes the box. We are happy if you help us to realize this beautiful project. We have the next two concepts in the planning, more coming soon.
