Finova Game

The game was conceived and designed for a training meeting. It features each of the seven lines of FINOVA businesses, complete with a likeness of the business head. The game was designed secretly and surprised all management and staff at it’s unveiling.


The design and production of this game was an interesting challenge. When approached by the department responsible for lender liability with the concept for the game I was intrigued. Incorporating each line of business head into the caricaturist graphics without their knowledge, brought a new dimension of challenge to the project. How would I get their faces onto the board without them knowing? My original conception of the game board layout was done at my dining room table on a piece of butcher paper measuring 18″ x 18″.

As we only required only 100 games to be manufactured/printed the project became more complicated. The search for a game manufacturer who could cost-effectively manufacture this small quantity began. Ultimately, we concluded that the tradition sources for game manufacturing would not work for us and we produced two iris prints for each game board. (One for the top of board, one for the bottom half).

The  game board was then hand assembled. The next phase of the project was to hire an artist to take the concept design, the photos of management and LOB’s and begin the illustrations. The committee met the deadlines and the quality of the finished product was superior.
