Designing an advent calendar is a lot of fun. For this project I started thinking about the vintage board games we had in our home when I was a kid. My family LOVED board games and we even had a game closet, not unlike the game closet in Wes Anderson’s film “The Royal Tenenbaums”. I implemented as many game board conventions conceivable into the design. Because I didn’t have creative control over the placement of the door perforations, my solution was illustrating a snaking path with a “chutes and ladder” style game play. But maybe the best part of this design is the copy I wrote on the back for the instructions… definitely worth reading.
