In April of 2008, theory11 set out to create the next standard in playing card design. Their focus was dual: design and quality. The deck had to be the best of breed in both categories.
Bicycle Guardians playing cards are theory 11's second deck.
On the design front, theory11 teamed up with WA007 - one of the most respected, avant-garde design studios in the nation - and worked side by side tirelessly for weeks. Hundreds of hours were spent tweaking and polishing the design from the ground up. Over 17 rough draft concepts and prototypes were produced. The final result is a mix of modern core structure, contemporary style, and a touch of theory11 signature grunge.
