An occasional blog about recent projects
As part of the revamp of their Borrow the Moon scheme (see previous post), I was asked by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) to develop some entirely new materials that could accompany and complement the main educational materials. The new materials would also have to stand on their own and be used by students and teachers not lucky enough to have access to the Lunar and meteorite samples. Each new element would take the form of a booklet and an accompanying two-sided poster.
With no existing resource to update, this Borrow the Moon 'side project' was entirely my own to implement, research, design and illustrate – it was left entirely to my own judgement and it was tonnes of fun!
First up was the booklet and poster to accompany the 'Lunar' element of the scheme, which was designed to be the more 'interactive' of the two by including some activities for the students to complete.
You can download the full-fat PDF of the booklet from the STFC's Borrow the Moon website here and the PDF of the poster here.

Infographics are an incredibly powerful tool for communicating complex ideas to customers, the public, or to policy makers.
So, if you think your company, institution... or perhaps evil empire... would benefit from Ben's infographics why not get in touch to discuss your needs?
