Glitch Playing Cards
Glitch: "An electrical pulse of short duration that is usually the result of a fault or design error, particularly in a digital circuit." That's a pretty good way to put it. Thank you, Wikipedia (yes, I donate regularly.) My definition of "glitch" would have been: "When 0s and 1s get Tourette's." And Soleil Zumbrunn went for a visual definition. She explains glitch to the world with GLITCH. GLITCH is a set of meticulously designed playing cards, each of whose classic appearance is interrupted with a unique optical malfunction.
Every one of the 52 cards in a GLITCH deck is different, sporting its own skewed aesthetic in an artistic and eye-catching way, but not one so disarming that players cannot instantly tell which cards they are holding and which suits belong together.
GLITCH was a successfully funded Kickstarter project for Swiss designer Zumbrunn. The cards are now available for all to purchase from everyone's favorite retail middleman/god/pimp, Amazon.
