Bicycle 4 Elements

Bicycle ® 4 Elements

By Yoan TANUJI & Guillaume BIENNÉ

 

You are a player, a collector, a magician or you love fantasy artworks... Come with us into the Bicycle ® 4 Elements Project.

 

The Tuck cases :

The tuck cases look like miniaturized old books as if each deck could tell you a story.

By collecting the 4 Bicycle ® 4 Elements you will get a complete small library of 4 tomes.

The suits :

We worked very hard on each suit to make them correspond to one element:

Spades become symbol of AIr, Hearts represent Fire, Diamonds reflect Water and finally Clubs the Earth.

 

The crown Characters:

King and queen become God and Goddess of their own element. They are a powerful and rich character protected by their respective jack who is a fantasy creature.

The artwork design on each card is colourful and full of small details which remind us of the Magic of the 4 Elements.

The point cards :

Compared to an ordinary deck, all the aces have a special design full of details and not just the Ace of Spades.

To make this deck more original, we broke the classical codes. Each point card has a design which differ from the regular disposition.

The Jokers :

In the Bicycle ® 4 Elements the jokers won't be men as they are used in 95% of all playing cards.

Here you will find two beautiful women. They are magicians who are twins linking the power of four Elements.

The Backs:

Each deck of cards Bicycle ® 4 Elements will have a specific back design around with its own element.

The 54 playing cards based on the Air theme will have a back side tone inspired by clouds.

The backs about the Fire topic will be shaded of red and  orange, the Water deck will have a blue colour, and the Earth deck will be vegetal green colorized.

Allocation of funds

The whole project including the offer from US Playing Cards Company, the artwork designer fees and communication charges,  cost about 27 500 €.

 

Each of us will pay 10.000€, if we get  7 500€, we will be able to launch the entire project. Each of the 4 decks will be printed in 2.500 units, and will not  be printed anymore.

 

If we reach   200% or 300% of our goal, we will improve the standard tuck cases  characteristics (Gold foil...)
