I've designed a fun tabletop game that will appeal both to families and to serious gamers, something in the Ticket to Ride and Carcassonne neighborhood.
What's your vision?
I am looking for art for a tabletop game. It’s called 10,000 over Iowa, and it’s inspired by what you see when you look out an airplane window at a patchwork landscape of fields. The aesthetic emphasis is not on agriculture so much as the beauty of the vista. You can see some visual ideas at https://www.pinterest.com/playsyrtis/10000-over-iowa-inspiration/ and images of some very homemade versions of the game in the attachments. 10,000 over Iowa is a tile-laying game in which players build a landscape of fields. There is no board—the main components are 1” x 1” and 2” x 2” tiles. Since these are the heart of the game, their visual appeal is important to the gameplay experience. I am open to suggestion about the artistic style. When the contest is done, I will be looking for box art next, so a 1-to-1 follow-up project is a possibility. In each of five colors, I’d like art for: five 2” x 2” field tiles with center-pivot irrigation circles one 2” x 2” field tiles containing buildings one 2” x 2” field tiles containing silos five 1” x 1” field tiles with center-pivot irrigation circles one 1” x 1” field tiles containing buildings one 1” x 1” field tiles containing silos For effective play, the five colors and three types (irrigation, building, and silo fields) should be distinguishable at a glance. But some visual texture would be welcome. The irrigation circles I definitely want to keep, but I’m open to suggestion about what the other two types are. I would prefer some aesthetic variation within each type. (See examples in the attached rules and photos.) File requirements: The anticipated producer writes, “Make sure each file has each graphic element separated so we can cut and paste as required. You can leave a 1/8 gutter around all pieces to ensure full color registration.” I’d like PDFs of at least 300 dpi; if you can provide Corel Draw files in addition, that would be helpful.
Let me know if any additional information would be helpful to you.

Really enjoyed working with Max. Picked his design because it was the most unique and edgy one. He was also very responsive along the process and a great communicator.
Looking forward to work with him again!
