The Prompt: Create a game that is centered around typography in any form.
I have always been fascinated with how familiar forms are hidden around us, especially letterforms. I took this opportunity to expose others to the fun that could be had when you create a new idea out of something else. Typograpics is a game described as prompted Pictionary. This game was played several times with designers and non-designers alike, all enjoyed it!
The packaging has been purposefully constructed so that the box is the game board itself. There is a drawer on the side that hold all necessary products to play the game.
Skills: Concept Creation, Art Direction, Graphic Design, Package Design, & Production
Typograpics: a game created for everyone, from the typographic connoisseur to the child who just learned how to read, based in the roots of typography and typographic forms.
This team-oriented game prompts the drawer/artist of each team with a letter (pulled at random) and a category card. The specific word from the category card is determined by the space that the team currently occupies. The drawer/artist must draw the intended word using the letter form they picked as the skeleton.
Open your eyes to what letterforms can be and start the party with Typograpics!
