Learn The Basics of Typography With TAKTIPO
Students Balázs Szemmelroth, Monika Rudics, Anikó Mező have designed the branding and packaging for TAKTIPO, a fun, bold card game that aims to help designers learn the basic rules and terms that come with studying typography.
“TAKTIPO is a card game, which helps you learn the basics of typography and type anatomy easily. Primarily it was made for young people who are interested in communication design, but of course it’s useful for everyone to be aware of the rules of typography.”
“The books and typography materials are often boring which decreases attention and makes studying difficult. However, if you make studying exciting, learning is easy and fun. That is why we decided to create a game: to learn by playing.
The card game contains one deck of 63 cards. Each card, has 3 sections: a question about the basics of typography or type anatomy, the correct answer for the question, and an illustration based on the question.”
“We usually bring card games for a trip or to a party so we created the proper packaging for TAKTIPO, using the traditional card packaging examples. In addition, we made a board to put the cards on, which has its own pocket in the card box. You can read the rules of the game too on this board.
The packaging follows the design of the card illustrations, with vibrant and dynamic elements. The size of the cards is appropriate to carry in a pocket or a bag.”
“If that was not enough we created the online version of TAKTIPO, so you can play it anytime, anywhere.”
