The brief was to publish my Critical Paper as a printed book.
My critical Paper was entitled Psychology led Design – Investigating the Potential for Graphic (Communication) Design to Positively Facilitate a Better Learning Experience for Young Boys Through the Foundation Phase in Wales.
My research question was – By using some the finding of child psychologists and ideas from radical thinkers who have helped to shape the early years Foundation Phase we have in our Primary schools today, can I as a designer significantly improve the learning experiences of the rising number of young boys struggling to learn?
The finished book is 48 pages plus cover and was printed by Blurb. I took photographs of children in the Y1 class I help out in, centering on their hands doing things. I then digitally manipulated the images to create bright and colourful colours with which to base my colour palette.
Here are a few sample spreads.
