BSV CARTE per gioco
How a playing cards design adventure has begun
We're back on business
At the end of 2022, my cousin Mattia and I launched our first crowdfunding on Kickstarter to fund the print of our regional playing cards: Busso Striscio Volo – nuove carte romagnole da marafone. Despite the efforts made, the campaign failed and the cards were never printed. But we learned a lot about design, crowdfunding, illustration, and production. And we really enjoyed learning. The experience has been gratifying and rewarding even if it has not been crowned with commercial success.
So we decided to repeat the experience making the most of the new knowledge and skills we have acquired: we set to work on a new deck of cards. We renamed ourselves BSV playing cards paying homage to our first project and started work on the new deck from scratch. And we gave ourselves a smooth logo too!
We launched our second project: a deck called “Le sovversive”, The subversives. On BSV’s social networks, Facebook page, and Instagram account, we will post creative content, research ideas, and materials related to the process.
Dear players and collectors please follow us, sish us good luck and see you soon,
Daniele and Mattia
The discovery of the cosmic background radiation is considered the most important of the experimental tests in favor of the cosmological theories that foresee a Big Bang.
It is the echo of the creation of the world. The thing that still makes me laugh, after all these years, is that Arno Penzias (the one on the right) and Robert Wilson (on the left) exchanged that inexplicable background noise for a disturbance related to the pigeon poop, the “signals of interest”.
See, origin of all that exists and poop.
To be disbanded.

I keep them here because I feel nostalgic and I still found them funny after all this time.
My name is Daniele Prati and I was born in Italy in 1976.
I’m a multidisciplinary creative designer and content creator.
I’m a location-independent freelance aiming to make a living while traveling, learning, creating, and changing.
That’s my way of becoming myself.
About the website
I am interested in exploring, researching, and developing projects and content that combine different arts, disciplines, and platforms while being solid, functional, and unrepeatable.
I am available for commercial and no-profit projects and open to collaborating on engaging projects anywhere.
Wanna receive updates sent with unspecified frequency on my projects?
