  • i had an idea... but can we do it?

    i've been on a few other forums and they have kinda long running collaborative projects on the go... like eatpoo and their tarot cards (tarot project)

    ...well after reading the linotype thread in news, i reckon we should all work together to make a monopoly board! What do you think?

    You choose the name of the place (like 'Helvetica Gardens' - cheers Balou) and the design for the block (so it won't look like the normal board with the flat two colour squares) and then gradually we piece together a whole design orientated monopoly board...

    Post up the images here and note which square from the real board it is replacing... I'll collate and stick them together and eventually we'll have our own GDF-opoly!!?!?!?! What do you think? You could even design some new playing pieces (to replace the iron and top hat etc)

    c'mon guys lets do it, it'll be fun!

      yeahhhh lets do it....

      i reckon the design of each 'street' should be at a ratio of 1 unit wide by 2 units tall... and obviously each corner square being 2 by 2...

      here's a link to a pic of a board so you know which streets/features to replace...

                          A fish-shaped pancake perhaps?

                                I understand that when you're new to this, it feels like you must take whatever work you can get, and swallow all the crap that comes with it. But it's actually just the opposite. This is a toxic relationship....

                                Also just to address your OP more specifically, Twitter vs a forum.

                                On twitter I can message someone I know and ask for a crit or fresh set of eyes. On a forum I can post that same message,...

                                It's another social media app that allows you to connect with people, in some ways it's easier than others. Its one more way to market yourself, and people have gotten plenty of work off twitter alone....
