Test Your Typeface and Brand Knowledge With Two Cool Memory Games
The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over the Lazy Dog is a Typeface Memory Game based on the classic game of matching two images.
This very attractively finished typographic memory game includes 25 variations of the letter ‘A’, each in a different letter type. Players attempt to find the matching A’s in the same letter type. The player who has the highest number of matching letters wins the game. Typographic information about the letter is included on the card, and a separate folder provides a general history of the typography. This is an enjoyable and instructive game for graphic designers and anyone who is fascinated by letter types. As you play, you increasingly recognize what are often very subtle differences between the letters and more about the details of the letter types. They become progressively easier to recognize and distinguish from one another (even Univers and Helvetica!)
Among the letter types included in the game are Akzidenz Grotesk, Baskerville, Centaur, Garamond, Helvetica Rockwell, Times New Roman, Univers and many more. The game was assembled and designed by the Brazilian design studio, ps.2 arquitetura + design.

The Brand Memory Gameis another addition to the successful BIS memory games series, a new game about the knowledge of brands. For this game, Hendrik-Jan Grievink has made a selection of 30 internationally well-known brands, showing neither logo nor name on the images of the matching pairs. The challenge is to find matching pairs of a brand, based solely on their characteristic colors and style elements and a short description of the brand.
Playing this game is great fun and offers an excellent test of your brand knowledge. Hendrik-Jan Grievink is also one of the creators of the Fake for Real Memory Game, which has already gone into its fifth edition.
