Success! (2018)

Stacking board game

I designed and created ‘Success!’, a stacking board game which aimed to illustrate the futility of the pursuit of materialistic success. Players pick a card from the deck which determines which type of block they pick up. Materialistic ideas of success are paired with the difficult-to-stack blocks, and healthier ideas of success are paired with the easy-to-stack blocks. The game is won by stacking 9 blocks and is nearly impossible to win.

I handmade the wooden blocks in UAL’s wood workshop and designed the graphic elements on Adobe Illustrator.
