Engage with make-up in a brand new way. 

DOT is a game for creativity, communication and touch. Get inspired by the DOT Cards that will prompt and influence you to cover the other player in your expressive designs, head-to-toe, (and vice versa). All the while, improving your communication with the other player and having an enjoyable time!

Together, we have designed a creative-inspired, interactive card game that gives couples, friends, and families the opportunity to engage with face and body art in a substantive way. With an emphasis on expression and communication, players work their way through the Dot card game which simultaneously builds greater understanding and encourages the creation of original face and body artwork.

Who made this revolutionary product?

DOT has been brought to life by a group of young creatives between London and Glasgow. Our team's disciplines span across photography, graphic design, makeup artistry, illustration, interior design, architecture, and product design. We have combined all of our skills into a shared vision and final result that we hope to share! 

This  project was born out of a desire to assign credibility to makeup, an art form and industry that is largely viewed as strictly superficial. The initial concept stemmed from the quick trust that is built from applying makeup to someone else's face and the deep conversation that naturally follows. In the process of players engaging with Dot and  learning more about each other, we hope their perceptions of what makeup is, who can be for, and how it can be used will change for the better.

In the future...

Ultimately we plan to partner with a brand that we can closely collaborate with to  design makeup for all. Our vision is to create eco-friendly, easy to use, multipurpose products with post-modern branding. What once was known as lipstick will be renamed to "Colour Stick" and instead of limiting the product to only the lips players will have the option to apply it to the whole face and body. These products will be included with the card game in our final packaging, turning Dot into a complete tool kit.

With Dot, players will have everything they need to improve communication with their partners, bond further with their families, be silly with their friends, and have the best time creating original artwork in the process. We are committed to reaching our ultimate fundraising goal of £3000. Your generous contributions will turn an idea into a reality. Together, we will start a movement, a community of dots, making beautiful art as we grow to understand each other more.

To help us to reach our goal and bring Dot to life please donate and share with other people who love fun and self expression! 

Risks and challenges

We are a group of students from University of the Arts London and Glasgow School of Art. Should we reach our fundraising goal two out of our eight team members would be fully committed to dedicating all of our time to bringing this project to life with the help from our other six team members.
