An occasional blog about recent projects
I was also asked by the STFC to design a poster to accompany the Hands on Universe educational pack. This was the result.
I was approached by the delightful folk at the Science and Technology Research Council (STFC) to redevelop some of their educational materials. First on the list was a reworking of their ‘Hands on Universe’ activity pack.
It was supposed to appeal to students between the ages of 7 and 11, the existing design (below) was a bit… well, it was bit dated.
The content for the new pack was provided by the STFC, Royal Observatory Greenwich, and National Space Centre – along with some improvisation from myself.
Redesigning the content was great fun and I roped in my super-talented daughter, Jay Gilliland, to design some characters to give my infographics a bit more kiddy appeal.
Both myself, the STFC, and the schools it was intended for, were rather pleased with the result.
