Children’s Book

I think this book is really effective and very suitable for children. There is good use of white space and I like how the text interacts with the imagery. I feel the use of having bigger text stands out and makes the pages more interesting. I feel for my book I should use a lot of colour and put emphasis on the typography with my chosen typefaces.

I love the textures that have been applied to these illustrations and how the typeface relates to the scene that it is in.

The pages in this book are really colourful and are full of action. The pages have a lot of depth and the typeface is really simple to read and balances out how busy the pages are and relates to the city feel. I think my pages should be colourful but have more solid blocks of colour in them.

The illustration style is quite quirky and the type reflects this. I like the solid colours, however, I feel the pages that have a gradient aren’t effective.

I really like the colours used in this book and the simple layout of elements. I feel that this style is effective and simple and slightly layered.

These illustrations are quite soft in appearance but really effective with the use of colour, light and shadow.

The textures on the pages are really strong and the layered effect adds depth to the page. This would work really well for my book and if I combined this style with a textured paper stock I feel the book would be really effective and appeal to children. The typography is simple and I like how certain words have been highlighted and made bigger. The use of different typefaces works really strongly and helps to break up the story and gives different emotions to the book. I love the simple positioning of the text and how it works with the images on the page. I feel this style of book would be very suitable for my audience and book.

I really like the colour scheme used and the typeface, I feel the texture is really effective and this would work for the backgrounds of my book.

I quite like the design and typeface as it has a Rob Ryan feel about it, I feel the typeface for children wouldn’t be suitable, however the style of illustration could be a way to tell my story.
