Civil Engineering for Kids
SEPTEMBER 20, 2007
Most of the projects I get involved in these days are long range turnaround ones. Anywhere from a month to two. This summer I had one that gave me a month to produce 3 totally illustrated 4 page pamphlets geared to kids in elementary school. Funded by the American Society of Civil Engineers and orchestrated through WGBH Educational Outreach Division.
Front cover of grades 3-4 pamphlet
Each brochure was geared to a different grade group; 3rd - 4th, 5th - 6th, 7th - 8th.
The intent of them is to educate kids about Civil Engineering with the long range hope of interesting them in it as a field of study.
Each had to have a different feel, relate to the specific age group and
work as a series. I did the design, type, illustrating, the whole shabang!
Worked with designers Gaye Korbet and Tyler Kemp-Benedict at the GBH Design Department.
