We were asked to design a board game that is appealing to a chosen demographic. A physical packaging structure with complete pieces to play a game was needed. This project was inspired by the geometric elements of Art Deco and an emphasis on “Speakeasies”. The board game has stylized typography and geometric illustrations in order to reflect the Art Deco period. The concept and the style of the board game explored the idea of hidden bars and clubs and their lavish decorations during the Prohibition period in the 1920s.
