  • 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?

                                Usually you write up a project brief and ''design rationale'' before you even begin to design. Not after.
