Design Rationale

Using specially commissioned illustrations together with stock images, this book aims to present food chain cycles in a fun and engaging way to upper primary students. The graphic approach to the illustrations give the book a contemporary feel that’s quite different from what’s out there in the primary education market. Because this book was versioned for international audiences, the text in the interiors is set in black to accommodate language changes. The typography also follows a set guide for the Oxford Literacy Independent series.
