From creator Judy Eklund:
All ideas start with a spark, a light that dispels darkness… an inception. Our world’s great thoughts, inventions, movements have been built on the foundation of history’s first great thinkers. These people were the revolutionaries that realized that what is, is not always as it seems, and persevered to birth new worlds of thought and knowledge.
The Inception playing cards were created to celebrate the people who were vanguards in their fields. Their ideas laid the bedrock for growing fields of knowledge, discovery and invention.
For Inception my inspiration came from Leonardo DaVinci’s sketches and his obsession with knots. I wanted to create something that looked like it was created 500 years ago and use the knots as a design element that is woven throughout the project.
