Released in celebration of the fifth anniversary of dealersgrip, FORM playing cards were created to question the differences between temporary and tangible form and to help visualise the intricate act of shaping structural movement - the foundations of cardistry itself.
FORM's design is organic, and features movement-enhancing borders that fuse with an array of distinct shapes and obscure gradients to create a vibrant polyphony of abstraction.
It's time to put your thoughts on paper.
Limited to 2,476 and printed by United States Playing Card Company on premium crushed Bee stock.
Oliver Sogard & Tobias Levin have almost 10 years worth of cardistry experience between them. dealersgrip was born from their combined love of cardistry and is an online marketplace where students can purchase video tutorials of the duo's incredibly visual and unique cardistry moves.
In November 2016, Sogard and Levin gave us a glimpse of their first deck of cards, STRIPE.
"As a cardist your only tool is a deck of cards, so the idea of designing our own came naturally. Although it might sound cliché, we really wanted our cards to stand out. They had to both represent our style of cardistry and what we admire aesthetically. The final product would have to be something we would use every day"
Since then dealersgrip has grown in popularity and 2017 we saw the release of the pairs latest creation, BRUSH. Both decks were sell-out successes and we're set to see a lot more from these two in the future!
