THE FOUNDERS

LADISLAS & DIMITRI
For both of us, it started with cardistry as a passion, but quickly, we understood that we had a lot more in common than this hobby. We realized that we both had the same vision, and felt like some things were missing from this art form: things we could improve or create. This is why we decided to build a cardistry brand together, and our first project was to completely rethink the deck of cards that we were used to handle, and to create for the first time an object crafted from scratch for cardistry. “Touch” is now our full-time job, and it is where all our time and creativity are focused.

As we both come from an artistic background, our goal is to keep exploring and developing those creative ideas that tingle our minds through our brands, creating new projects, products, and videos to explore the limits of our art.

THE BRANDS

CARDISTRY TOUCH
More than decks of cards, with Touch, we aim to create a complete experience for our community. We put our heart and souls into our projects, to deliver the best possible quality in everything we produce and release: our first deck of cards took more than 2 years of research and development. This perfectionist is a big part of what defines us as a brand. Not only for our cards, but for everything that revolves around them: we take great pride in the professionalism of our videos, the quality of our tutorials, and the amazing artists we collaborate with.
ZALEM INDUSTRIES
Zalēm is a playing card brand created by our friend Alex Matencio’s, but again, it’s not all about the cards. It’s true that we’ve always loved Alex’s designs, and playing cards are our main medium, but zalēm is a vision: a complex graphic world built inside Alex’s mind. That’s really what sparked our interest in this project.

We also believed that with our help and support, this project had the potential to reach new levels. That’s why we decided to take him under our wing: zalēm is now part of Touch, and we will keep building that brand together.
We started from a clean slate, redefining the direction of the brand with a clear vision, and rebuilding the @zalem.industries Instagram from scratch. This is just the beginning, and we have a lot planned for this.
