"Julia, Debbie and the entire Imago team were fantastic to work with.  They took a very difficult situation, a tight turnaround time needed for a complicated project, and not only put my mind at ease but they also delivered on everything flawlessly. I have worked with several different printers in the past and Imago is the gold standard in terms of quality service, communication, meeting deadline and delivering beautiful high-quality products."

Custom produced board game for the
Founders Forum

We were first contacted by game developer and entrepreneur Jenna Fernandes back in March 2016. Jenna had already got the first run of her board game 'The Next Big Thing' in production, but with a customised version sold to the prestigious Founders Forum in London for an upcoming event, Jenna was in need of more copies urgently!  

This version of the game was to include customised cards for the top 200+ founders from around the world who were to attend the event, figures such as Richard Branson, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and many more.  

'The Next Big Thing' is a game of entrepreneurship where players take on the role of startup founders to launch “the next big thing” that will change the world and eventually make them millions or potentially billions of dollars! Developed by Jenna and Sky Fernandes, the game was launched on Kickstarter where it almost doubled the target investment needed to go ahead.

Board game production

In just 3 short months Imago and Jenna worked closely together, overcoming all obstacles, to deliver a complete and finished product in time for the prestigious event mid June. 

With initial copies sent by airfreight and the balance safely on the sea, this project is a great example of how Imago can work closely with the whole team.  From design and artworking and helping with getting the files right, dummy making and checking materials, print (of course), sourcing for the playing pieces, collating the whole project, and working with the client to make sure deadlines are met, co-ordinating the shipping and offering up options to ensure products arrive on time. 

We loved working on this project with Jenna - it has been a real collaboration and we look forward to more!
