Blended Learning Essentials course illustrations
Blended Learning Essentials: Digitally-Enriched Apprenticeships is a CPD-certified online course on FutureLearn aimed at helping employers make the most of apprenticeships, offering advice on how to exploit digital technology to help enrich an apprentice’s training programme and experiences.
My role in this project was to develop a course map for the course, along with 5 illustrations to se as editorial decoration. As apprentices can be of any age and gender, it was important to not have depictions of people’s faces that would determine those attributes otherwise. As such, my solution to this problem was to focus on creating detailed illustrations of hands as most illustrations required involved someone using technology and connecting to others.
I developed a course map based on JISC’s design, using repeated patterns and a London Underground tube-style map to depict a journey. The illustrations were completed in greyscale first, with the primary colours used in the course map as an overlay.
