Elegance Playing Cards

Hey everyone, this is my first post here on the forum! I have started a kickstarter campaign called elegance playing cards and I would like your opinions on the deck design itself. Please be very decriptive if you choose to reply. Thank you for your time and effort!

-You have one way backs which people are usually turned off by.
-If you are removing the gray line around the front of the card just upload new pictures. I couldn't see a gray-less front card as I scrolled down.
-Trying to make the courts look holographic look terrible, especially with the line cutting them across the middle.
-This is your 3rd project in 2 weeks. How are backers supposed to trust you?
Move on, nothing to see here.

If I were to buy this deck, I would just buy an Alloy deck from GW.

@RichK

Thanks for the feedback rich.

I did not know that people did not like one way backs so that is some good info to have.

I will see what I can do about the pictures.

I was not going for a holographic look for the courts, I was going for a neon look. I will not put a line through the courts in my future decks. Again good info.

Yes you are right it is my third project in a week, and yes it looks bad. I am an impatient person and I'm working on fixing that.

@Rapy

Not sure what you mean by that.

Welcome to UC, Mady. I added you to the Deck Artist group.

Enjoy! I added a few new comments on the Comments on the project. Nice decks, especially the fan.

The courts seem way too subdued in my opinion. There are two problems that contribute, one is the court faces are too small, and the other is the court faces use a color scheme that's much more mild than the distracting pearlescent coloring which frames it.

Regarding the backs. I'm not sure how I feel about the fans myself, and besides the one way issue, it kind of reminds me of those "Autostereograms" that I just learned that that's what they're called. Those pictures you have to blur your eyes to see an image. What I mean ultimately is that it hurts my eyes a little bit to look at them. My brain keeps trying to decipher what I'm looking at, and it keeps failing. If this is intentional or desired, I would proceed, otherwise I would provide some kind of better structure to the image.
