project: The Royal Game of Ur
medium: Print

As well as more conventional print material, we created a giant version of The Royal Game of Ur (an ancient mesopotamian board game) for the press launch of www.mesopotamia.co.uk. People became genuinely involved with the act of playing this ancient game, creating a dynamic focus for the launch.
We designed an elegant yet robust unit that could hold all the elements of the game (board, dice, t-shirts, info packs etc), this was easy to move about as well as incorporating information panels which give the public the rules and brief history of the game.
