RemoteLightSwitchBoxThe challenge with this series is that it had to be a detailed introduction to how basic electronics work, as well as a set of fairly complicated assembly instructions for the given project, for kids 8-12 years old.

My idea was to present it as a very detailed notebook, color-coded so that it is easy to see which pages explain the science (yellow) and which the assembly (white).

Headlines are on torn-out post-it notes, and there are “doodles” that are diagrams explaining the science, instructions on how to build the device, or just silly cartoons. Each spread of the notebook pages were Photoshop files with over a dozen layers each.

I also designed the packaging for the series, including full wrap, display of all of the pieces, plus a peek-a-boo to convince people to pick it up to see what is inside.
