New Bicycle “Ultimate Universe” Playing Card

“Two Brilliant Decks, Custom Playing Cards. Design elements of 2D digital art, Japanese Mythology, infused with striking color schemes!” 8e9eea1e2108a9ec0a8bb85945f10792_large ef4108e57d922aae57be47af1075a5ae_large



I would like to introduce you something cool and different, something funny and strong. Please have a look to the last production by Gambler’s Warehouse: the Ultimate Universe decks. Ultimate Universe is the work of Junichi Tsuneoka, a talented and experienced designer with a very personal style that blends a visual and conceptual fusion of Japanese pop culture and U.S. urban culture.
This deck is a conceptual expansion on the four symbols of Oriental mythology, a reinterpretation of something classic and deeply cultural and traditional using pixelated 2D computer graphics with strong color and greyscale patterns that leaves no one indifferent.

Here is the link of comprehensive case study for the project.

It’s got that whole “8-bit” vibe to it without clubbing you over the head with it. Bright colors, too – this will really stand out. – Don Boyer,

Over the past year, I have been creating a series of original bamboo toy robots.
It is starting to become a big family and it is growing bigger. Now I feel like it is becoming a true original brand.
So I decided that it’s time to introduce it to you.
