The concept of the deck is influenced by recent fashion trends, especially of cardists. I've noticed that playing cards have been part of the lifestyle of cardists. Since we bring decks outside on a daily basis and practice cardistry,  it’s natural to call for decks that match our outfits. I credit Anyone Worldwide for the inspiration since they are great at integrating playing cards into their lifestyles.


So the deck is called Prototype playing cards–where did the name come from?

Actually, when I was designing the box, I wanted a logo on the box but hadn’t come up with a name yet. So I put "Prototype" initially to see what the box might look like. However, once the box arrived, I happened to like how the word "Prototype" looked on the box.


The back design consists of black and white stripe with two vertical white strips and two horizontal black strips. The stripe makes parallel motions stand out, so it's perfect for packet cuts. I also added small dots on the corners to accentuate fan and spreads. To keep the color consistent with the concept, hearts and diamonds are black but arranged slightly differently to distinguish them from spades and clubs. The design is rather sporty but works fine with street style as well.
