chinese whispers game

by alkisti


My idea is based on the chinese whispers game (or broken telephone), that children all over the world use to play. The goal of the game is to pass the message of the first player to the last, but errors typically accumulate in the retellings. The many lines at the background with the different colors represent the numerous languages and different, unique cultures! The game that the players play represents mutual understanding, and cooperation despite the fact of the ethnic diversity.

I wanted to promote the cultural diversity, universality and plurality as well as the cultural rapprochement as the base of a universal dialogue, peace, mutual understanding, and cooperation.

Also this graphic design was my project at Graphic design course at the Department of Product and Systems Design Engineering, where i study!
