Award: Yellow Pencil

Yellow Pencil / Graphic Design / Catalogues & Brochures / 2007

These two books, 'Boys and Girls' and 'True or False, have been produced for NHS trusts in Glasgow, Lanarkshire and Ayrshire. The books were designed as a pastiche of the classic Ladybird titles of the 50s and 60s, juxtaposing the innocence of the originals with sexual content and West Scotland dialect. The brief was to create material to stimulate discussion and consideration of sexual issues among children aged 12 to 16. The books focus on issues like peer pressure, bullying, boasting and lying in relation to sexual matters.
