The CMYK Playing Cards will liven up any game involving a deck of cards in no time. Stripping just about everything familiar about such cards, except of course the cards themselves, this deck uses vibrant modern colors and bold typography in place of the classic drab palette and boring characters. Although it may seem complicated at first, the CMYK Playing Cards are just as easy to use.

Designed by Hundred Million, a design studio based in the United Kingdom, the CMYK Playing Cards is made up of four colors: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. These colors represent the four different suits. The numbers have been cleverly converted to percentages while the words 'king,' 'queen,' 'jack,' and 'ace' are still present to represent those necessary face cards.
