Welcome to the sixth instalment from the Orbit team, and it's their most ambitious design to date!
The Sixth Edition comes packed with all the features loved in the V4 and V5 decks, but includes a few key design alterations and a stunning, forest green colour-way!
This time around, Orbit have added UFO trails that spill over the borders, searching the forests below for hosts! Look closely and you can see our beloved Carl being beamed up and abducted! It's no wonder that an Alien has replaced him and is now riding his bike! To top it off, you can expect the same crushed premium stock, same matte tuck box and the same traditional cut as previous decks!
The cards feature retro Arrco courts and pips with an incredibly subtle one-way design, a double backer, duplicate 8 of Spades and two identical Jokers.
Printed by The United States Playing Card Company on Crushed Premium Bee Stock with paper sourced from sustainable forests and printed with vegetable-based inks.
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.
