Sunnu Rebecca Choi : Make it make non/sense

Design Product & Packaging

Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
I came across ‘Colorless green ideas sleep furiously’ by Noam Chomsky, which is nonsensical, but grammatically correct. This card game allows the audience to create their own sensical or nonsensical sentences; brings family and friends together and provides imaginative thinking by forming sentences using random words. This could be also used for educational purposes for children and ESL students.

How was the illustration used:
The game includes 510 word cards (nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives and conjunctions). Each card has an illustration that represents the meaning of the word for better understanding.

How did you make this work:
I started by coming up with a list of common English words in four categories, noun, verb, adverb and adjective. Then I wrote down each word on a paper, folded and picked randomly to form multiple sensical/nonsensical sentences to finalize the words to be included in the game. Each card has a drawing and the word categories are separated by colours for easier visual reference for the users.
