Children's Book, Illustrations, Color Theory, Psychology
Many children with autism struggle to express their emotions. Which lead me to create a book that shows them what different emotions feel and looks like using a color palette and fonts that focused on their learning could help gain a better understanding of their feelings.
I needed many things to keep in mind while producing this book: supporting sensory overload, using a sans serif typeface, and using no capital letters. For the color choices and background, I wanted to keep all the colors muted and the interior's background for the spreads white so they would be less distracting. The colors have undertones of pastels, which allows them to be easier on the eyes and more muted, allowing autistic children to experience the colors in a way that isn't overwhelming to them.
