Meltdown | Red Dot Design Award

Back Download

The product development of Meltdown focused on a child-oriented approach. In this way GEOlino, a science magazine for children, aims to raise children’s awareness for global warming in a playful way. Meltdown is a waterproof board game, which melts during the game and thus allows children to directly experience the consequences of global warming. The goal of the game is to save polar bears. The eye-catching design in the colours of the sea is reminiscent of the form of an ice floe. The clear surfaces of an iceberg form the design template for the figures and the lettering.
