We need the cover of the box designed for a board game we are creating.
When I say cover, I basically mean a big images/illustration that will go on the front of the box.
Here is a link of some cool board game ideas that we like.
The illustration/image needs to be based off of the numbers 2016.
The box will be square, so the numbers should to be stacked 20 on top of 16.
Now, as 2016 was generally all around shitty, the awfulness of this year should be reflected in the illustration.
Seriously, check out our list, it was pretty terrible.
The main issues we need to get across is that this is a dark game, anyway you want to express that feel free.
You can try and use all the ideas, or this can be a super simple graphical design. We are open to your creativity around the design.
You may try to show that in any way you want, but here is a list of many shitty (and some good) things that happened in 2016.
These are also part of the board game , so it would be nice to work some of them into the illustration.
Don't feel like you have to include everything, and any other 2016 news (good or bad) is also ok, just point it out to me if it's not on the list.
DO NOT MAKE IT LOOK POLITICAL (other than one Trump and one Hillary reference/caricature maximum.)
Terror attacks (Nice truck terrorist attack, suicide bombers, etc)

Rio Olympics (dirty pools, losing keys to the stadium, insane number of pickpocket victims, etc)
ALS gene discovered!
Donald Trump/Hillary Clinton election debacle
Assisted suicide (now legal in six states.)
Recreational marijuana (legal in eight states.)
Cubs win the world series
Exploding Samsung cell phones

Failed coup in Turkey
North Korea / Kim Jung Un still being generally crazy
How you go about doing this is up to you.
You can have some of these events making up the numbers 2016 or you can have little caricatures of these event climbing all over the numbers or whatever else you think of.
Those are just two ideas I've had. Any other take on this project is also very welcome.
Color or Black and White. Whatever you think looks best. I can see both working very well.
EDIT: The board is 20"x20" and the box will be 10.5"x10.5".
