Minimal yet intricate, vintage yet modern. Think Back to the Future meets Tron and prepare yourself for Orbit Seventh Edition.
V7s feature a pink dominant centre surrounded but the iconic mountain range found on the Fifth Edition Orbit deck, only this time the mountains are inverted, creating a window displaying constellations hidden behind each card!
Lives lost in the exploration of space are honoured as the V7 tuck case pays tribute to those in the 1986 Challenger space shuttle mission STS-51-L. On the bottom of the tuck you'll find a rainbow inside the Orbit logo, inspired by NASAs rainbow mission patches which signified life. The last names of the crew can be found on the inside of the tuck case to ensure their legacy lives on.
Pips and indices follow the retro theme and are replicas of a 70's Arrco deck with thinner, slightly wavy characteristics, that capture the essence of vintage playing cards - imperfections and all. Reds have been replaced with the same pastel-pink that can be found on the card backs for an eye-catching aesthetic.
Printed by The United States Playing Card Company on premium crushed stock. Each deck arrives with a double backer, duplicate 8 of Spades and is traditionally cut.
Since childhood Brown was fascinated with how things worked. Over the years he developed many talents but none as prevalent as magic. Moulded by a group out of the Bay Area called the Magic Garage, Brown met magicians who were experts in their field and who imparted valuable knowledge upon him. After studying the art for 4 years, Chris invented his first algorithm (at the age of 23!) after meeting Kim Peek, the original rain man. He entitled it, “The Rainman Algorithm” which, if told a birthday, can calculate the day you were born on, the day you'll turn 65 and what day it will land on this year - all in less than 5 seconds! Needless to say, a eye for detail and thoroughness is evident in every aspect of Brown's work.
Orbit came to life through Kickstarter and exceeded it's goal on the final day of the campaign. The 'perfect circle', a staple in the series' back design, illustrates a level of ability that most people strive for but seldom arrive at because many think it doesn’t exist or is unachievable.
The circle is perfection. The circle is a mentality. Its the highest level of expertise but also acknowledges that fact that we are all continuously learning, there is no beginning and no end.
