Initial Sketches

 

 

I firstly started with how many pieces I need and what kind of materials I can use. I thought of a couple of materials for the pieces and one material for the board. But I didn’t sketch certain forms.
I thought about colors of the opposite sides, how can I emphasize the different colors. Also I tried to make sure that board and pieces are going to look like a set, so I thought about using similar materials both on board and pieces.

 

 

I thought of using the corrugated structure of the cardboards material so I can make the squares without painting it.

I used the idea of our cancelled homework “transforming packaging” to transform the chessboard into a box to provide a practical storage to the user.
