Generation One, or ‘GEN1’ for short, combines vibrant pattern and controlled typography to create a unique deck, perfect for cardistry and magic. Inspired by Kier’s social media aesthetic using bright, eccentric colors, Luke has designed a deck that brings 80s vibes and presents them in a playful, modern way. Streaks of color band together in eye catching fans, as the paint splash effect twists neon inks to ensure the the cards stand out from every angle. Featuring modified standard card faces with bold, fully custom ad cards and a wild ace of spades to match, this deck proves that a working deck can look completely different to what is expected, and carditsry influenced designs can bring an edge to modern decks for magic.
