“Stranger & Stranger, you’ve outdone yourselves once again. Following their Holiday Spirits of the past few years, “to celebrate the year we broke out of our alcohol comfort zone and designed premium olive oils, fine foods, luxury luggage, and just plain crazy new stuff, we teamed up with the amazing Dan & Dave to create this, our Ultimate Deck.” And broke out of their alcohol they did! Previously, anyone who asked me for suggestions on alcohol packaging, i undoubtedly told them, Stranger & Stranger! Well it sounds like it has been quite the year for the incredible design group… and these cards (no surprise) are STUNNING, down to the tiniest of details! From the matte black magnetic box… to the velvety pouches… to the festive ambigram… to the seal on the deck… to the gilded edges of the deck… to the artwork adorning each card… it’s a magnificent deck of cards!”

Thorbjörn Ingason is a designer from Iceland and his work is super cool (see what I did there).
This is a deck of cards he designed for Icelandair. It features Nordic gods instead of royalty. I dig his style.
The style of the face cards is somewhat similar to the design style for the Sentinel playing cards made by Theory 11.
The Dynamic D*Haus folds and shifts into configurations developed using advance geometry and mathematics.

I’ve always wanted a deck like this, with the pips of the cards used to draw something.
