Phoenix Design Week

  • Phoenix Design Week Poster
    "Forward" – Game of Creative Advancement
  • When the organizers of Phoenix Design Week put out a call for poster submissions visualizing the idea of moving, thinking, and designing "Forward", I was struck with an idea almost immediately. My submission was a playable game with tips on succeeding as a creative pro. As a speaker/presenter at this event, I printed a short run of these posters and handed them out after my presenation. They went like hot cakes and a few of us even played a couple rounds between sessions.

  • FORWARD - GAME OF CREATIVE ADVANCEMENT. Find some friends and a basic die. Find or make a cool game piece. Oldest player goes first. Take turns in a clockwise direction. Landing on the same tile as another player is ok. Avoid creative blocks. Help your friends. Make some snacks. Don't spill the coffee. Remember, it's a game. It's all about the journey. Don't give up. Those who finish win. Keep going until you find your version
    of SUCCESS.
  • Everyone who received a copy of the poster received some painted wooden game pieces too. 
  • A brief process shot. I plotted out all of the tiles in illustrator, printed a tiled version of the poster at 24x36 and went to town figuring out the path players would follow and the tips I would write in.
