On a one week project I needed to show how "Culture is the reflection of
design" and "Design is the refection of culture" Utilizing materials I found
while dumpster-diving I designed a game similar to "Memory" featuring
typography, where cards would match not depending on the typeface (say,
san serif), but instead the year the typeface was created, who created it,
and why or when it was created (e.g. for the phone book, or during World
War II). I also included something our instructors continuously brought
up...our typos—the one typo I included was noticed by only one person.
Liking how the one-week assignment turned out, I decided to expand on it
as an independent project. This time I designed the game with fine art
photography as the subject. One card displays the photograph, the year it
was taken and the photographer. The matching card shows events that
relate thematically to the respective photograph.
