“Produce illustrations or animations for Childline to help 13-18 year olds going through a tough time.”
This brief explores an area that I am particularly fascinated in - my own mental health has been challenged before, so I felt as if this brief would be perfect for me. Young adults find it difficult to talk about mental health.
Mental health and the change for mental health is becoming more mainstream. The stigma around mental health, finding it embarrassing or shameful is ever so slowly diminishing.
The brief specifies to not show anything harmful or negative as this could be potentially triggering to those who are currently experiencing hardship.
Focusing on the positivity side, I came up with three styles I have chosen to illustrate and transferred the sketches through Office-lens to begin making them through illustrator.
- First sketch showing Childline are available however your feeling.
- Second sketch is showing how there are cleaner, happier times ahead
- Third sketch is demonstrating how talking to childlike can be nourishing your mind and mental wellbeing
Final illustrations for the Childline brief.
