My design project was about re-designing a textbook in domestic science- and consumer knowledge for the ages 13-15. Not only did I want to make a visual attractive product, I also wanted to make it better - for the many - as my research showed that many textbooks are hard to get through, not least for the illiterate. They are often a mess of different texts, boxes, arrows, references, colors, pictures and different fonts. All which are not working together very well. During the project I discovered the challenge in designing a textbook that is stripped, simple and clear, but still not feel boring.
