The children were part of the IBS Design department yesterday. Their brief was to design new road signs or Commonwealth Games signs, that could be understood by non readers.
I showed them some that already exist, which they were familiar with. They copied a chosen one, to see how difficult it is to make crisp, straight edges and correct proportion. They used pencil, then brio, then black paint.
We talked about how this type of work is done digitally now. But it can't be done without an understanding of how it's achieved and creative ideas.
They brainstormed, refined and produced their idea.
Ha, I just worked out how to add images using blogger. It's primitive but it's on.
