Ari, thank you for your time and wishing you the best with your project! (Project link at end of interview)
Here are the 10:
1. What got you interested in designing a deck of playing cards?
I have been a fan of playing cards for as long as I can remember. I enjoy card games and poker in particular. I decided to combine my skills as a graphic artist with my love of playing cards and when I finally stumbled across Kickstarter everything fell into place.
2. What was your inspiration for this deck?
As a huge fan of all music (and rock n’ roll in particular) but lacking any musical talent myself, I decided to create a deck paying tribute to Rock N’ Roll.
3. Why Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is the greatest thing in the world. It is the rockstar of crowd funding which has the potential to remove the barriers that would otherwise prevent people from bringing their creative ideas to fruition.
4. Do you have any other interesting hobbies or maybe a fun story about an experience involving your deck?
I enjoy playing poker, snowboarding and photography.
5. What is one thing you wouldn’t do without?
I’m very adaptable. There is no one thing I can’t live without.
6. What’s the best tidbit of advice you’ve ever been given?
“The money you don’t loose buys just as many things as the money you win.” -Mike Caro
7. What advice would you give to other aspiring deck creators/artists?
1. Do your homework as to what your expenses will be prior to launching on Kickstarter especially shipping costs.
2. Get as much feedback as you can before you launch your project.
3. Leave yourself an extra month or two on your Kickstarter estimated delivery date in case you have any production delays.
8. Do you have an online presence where we can view your work?
9. Is there anything else you’d like to say?
Not at this time.
