DK Visual Theasaurus

Finished spreads for DK visual thesaurus project. The brief was to re-invent the thesaurus for children aged 7+ in print form and propose a idea for an app. My idea was to have a character that travels to different places to discover new words, these places are based on places we visit in everyday such as train stations, shops or special treats like the aquarium. I decided to base the characters on dinosaurs as my initial thought was to use Theo the dinoSaursus which I thought would make it fun for children to follow on adventures.

The way of finding the new words are part of the discovery, for example trying a new jar of sweets that then pours out new words and uncovers the synonyms.

Theo the dinosaurus heads to the Aquarium to look for new creatures and find new words on the way.

Theo at the sweet shop browsing and sampling new tastes to take home and savour his new vocabulary.

At the train station so many busy dinosaurs are rushing to get on the next trains departing.
