This time last year, I applied for a creative residency. I pitched a project, which was to create a deck of cards while I was under their wing. Cut to: I didn’t make the cut. No residency for me, which was fine. The deck of cards put off indefinitely.
Mid-year, I got introduced to my Aries sister Chinggay‘s Practical Magic Starter Tarot Deck. Chinggay is my favorite non-spooky, non-creepy, tarot card reader friend. Her tarot deck was very much the same—non-spooky, non-creepy. Soon after, I knew I wanted to come out with an oracle deck, friendly enough for those who aren’t into new age stuff.
A couple months after that, I had friends and family pushing me to come out with a book. Apparently @mixfonts snarky truths spoke to them, and they thought these “Mix Quotes” would render well as a book or something similar.
The year was nearing the end, and I was content knowing that these three goals just weren’t happening for me in 2018.
That was until November of last year. Chinggay and I met one day to talk about a potential project (after a Love Lesson Reading, of course :p). Could we make an oracle deck using some of my quotes? YES. Yes, we could and yes, we did! In a span of a week, we brainstormed, conceptualized, picked out quotes, designed all the cards, had a hundred decks printed, built a website and started selling them worldwide. WHAT.
No coincidences, indeed. My three “failed” goals manifested themselves in this one project.
And then, Spot.PH comes and features our little oracle deck project that could; This IG-Worthy Deck of Cards Gives Solid #NoFilter Advice. I was beyond myself. <3
The #nofilter deck has 52 cards, and 3 accompanying guide cards to help you out. It’s perfect for those who want to try their hand at tarot but don’t quite know how or where to start. Ask a question, draw a card, and get your brutal answer. It’s pretty much a magic 8 ball, in playing cards form.
If you’re needing that friend of yours who’ll dish out no-BS truths, you still can. You can grab your own deck from www.nofilter.wtf. We ship worldwide!
