"what if we could teach culture through a board game?"
An experiment in civility design-- in Treviso, Italy.
In the summer of 2018, FIT sponsored a team of six designers and two professors to spend 2 weeks experimenting with civility-focused designs at Fabrica, Luciano Benetton's design research center in Treviso, Italy.
What I Made: My partner and I created Travellino, a board game that teaches players about society in different cities. The game targets immigrants and expats that could specifically benefit from learning about life in a new town.
Special thanks to Jerry Hsiao :)
Fun fact: I can’t lie. Like Marta Cabrera in Knives Out (will the knife references ever end?), dishonesty disagrees with me. That’s how I say what needs to be said. That's what I bring to my work-- unobscured, meaningful communication.
I was born in NYC, raised by Polish immigrant parents. My superpowers include an inability to smell (undeniable lifesaver in this city) and the energy to dance all night long (practice from countless Polish parties). I am a lover of beauty, so much that I document my findings in this visual diary. Reach out to chat in a hybrid bookshop/dance club/cafe sometime. :)
