With card games making a mighty comeback due to none other than Covid – 19, creatives Ellie Daghlian and Elisa Czerwenka have given the famous game an interesting twist.
Brands Against Humanity aims to look at the harsh truths about business and shares real-life examples (or horror stories), including brands like Coco Cola & Amazon. Offering a satirical perspective, the game calls out some of the biggest mistakes made by some of the biggest brands.
With examples like: “Coco Cola’s campaign to remove tap water from restaurants” & many more. The game doesn’t hide from calling out corporations, holding them accountable for their missteps.
