TextBook Illustration: Red Flag Green Flag Re-design

Step 1: Flip That Book!

For this project I felt a bit like one of those House Flip reality tv shows, except this was an educational elementary text and it's curriculum and illustrations were stuck in the 80's.

For this flip, the first step was to go over the old book and get an overall feel for the content being taught. Then after receiving the new script, I got to work on the future vision of the book's visual stories! 

 Next step was to anchor down the style of characters we wanted and make some samples.
