The Brief

We worked with BBC Bitesize to create illustrations for six stories that would be accompanied by a voice-over. The brief was for their new online learning resources for their Early Years Expressive Arts & Design and Early Years Understanding the World syllabuses. We lined up the perfect creatives to tell the tales!

Here are a couple of roughs and the final illustrations from each of the artists. Click on the finished gifs if you fancy listening to each interactive story on the BBC Bitesize website, along with the Early Years storytelling learning tasks.
