The goal of this project was to visually narrate a natural process. I was always fascinated with the arduous journey and life cycle of the salmon so I chose that as my natural process. I felt that this would be a great opportunity to utilize my illustration abilities.
This is a memory card game that helps children learn Each stage of the Chinook salmon lifecycle.
Through my research I discovered that there were stages within this process; I thought that would be a great way to present the information because stages would be an easy way for young children to digest the information. I illustrated all the elements within the game and adapted the copy from research I collected.
The front of the cards includes an overview of the stages on a map (shown towards the top). Each card afterwards highlights a specific stage showing how the salmon looks and various (easy to memorize) facts about the salmon (examples below).
