Designing in Bangalore: Activity Book Illustrations

22 Jun

One of the most enjoyable projects I worked on when volunteering at Janaagraha was creating illustrations for a student activity book for the Bala Janaagraha campaign. The book is a support resource for Janaagraha’a civic education program which is responsible for a specially created curriculum being delivered by volunteers to over 15,000 primary school students in Bangalore every year.
 
Here is a little peek at some of the illustrations I created!

These little kid characters were created for a recurring exercise where students have to write down their opinions and ideas on nominated topics.

This activity requires students to match up correct pieces of information.

I created this infographic to illustrate the levels of governance in India, right from the citizen to national government.

This graphic was a fun way to deliver a story piece in an illustrative format.

 

I also created a series of graphics for recurring headings throughout the book; it was pure fun creating these.

 This was definitely one of my favourite projects I’ve worked on and I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to be involved thanks to my volunteer position. I only wish I had been there longer to work on more of the book, but alas! You can only fit so much into ten weeks (I’m learning to accept the limitations of time!)
