Family Novlety Card Game Design

This mouth guard game was was a popular selling product that was sold in retail stores in the UK and in Australia. This was a take on an existing trend game where players have to insert mouthpieces and read out phrases from cards to their team mates. The game was both a fun and a commercial success.

Mouth Trap: The image above shows the box concept before being created ready for the print. The Nun was a playful take on the trand and added to the adult edition of the game and cards - which have various levels of profanities sillyness written on them. The vector character artwork was a mash up of stock graphics and custom vectors created in illustrator by myself.

Mouth Trap Adult Edition : Below is the real life example of the game plus its contents. Close to the original concept.

Due to the games success we came up with other editions of the game. The yellow version is the drinking edition. The theme is to remind the player of a pint of lager, fizz or weak beer, even down to the white top of the box. Note the visual references to drink positioned over the box. This game was an absolute blast to create.

The net / game expansion box : As filler we came up with extra cards for all sets of the games. It was team effort which crossed between family friendly, smutty, to very silly.

The artwork below shows the concept and the actual products beneath. The games were created over seas and shipped back to the UK.

My role in the project covered, adding my take on the stock vectors, creating the box look and feel from concept to print ready stages, card designs, coming up with phrases with a fellow colleague, testing the game and vector illustration.

The game was given a lot of time and attention from from the look and feel to the quality of the content which we tested. We believed that this carried over very positive reviews on Amazon and social media.

Creating Board & Card Games

Games! Games allow so much scope for fun a creativity they are some of my favourite projects to work on. When working on a game project I try not to just base it on what 'I' like but what I think the player would like. I hate the idea of dressing up a bad game to go on the shelves. The quality - even at a basic level needs to run through from top to bottom. If you need a game / graphic designer / creative director to help on your next project I would be more than happy to offer my skills and experience. I happy to be as involed in the project as you are willing to allow.

I can work on a freelance or contract basis and would be more than happy to sign NDA's - its all hush with me once we have agreed on the project and its terms.
