33 Card Shark Creations

From Decadent Game Designs to Peek-A-Boo Decks

— November 17, 2011 — Art & Design
If you thought that the playing card was immune to innovation, then you need to check out all of these creative card shark creations. The playing card has been a source of inspiration for fashion companies, artists and designers for years. Artists often put their own unique stamp on a deck of playing cards with a nerdy redesign whereas designers seem to prefer constructing functional furniture out of decks.

Even if you aren't into gambling, chances are that you'll find something among all of these killer card shark creations to love. I myself am terrible at poker but find that I am strangely drawn to the awesome video game-themed card decks. It's nearly impossible not to love a 'Space Invaders' or 'Super Mario' deck of cards after all.
