Think Click SPB on That Blue Square Thing

Think, Click

DIGITAL GRAPHUCS

You need to produce two digital graphics:

  1. a CD cover for a CD ROM which will be sent to schools
  2. a collectable card for children to collect and swap featuring your e-safety buddy

CD Cover

Schools will be sent a CD ROM with a range of activities on that can be used by teachers in class. It will be aimed at Year 5 and 6 teachers.

You need to create an eye catching CD cover using the template provided. It should feature your e-safety buddy in some way. It needs to have the words "Think, Click" and "Key Stage 2" on it.

Before you do this you need to do some planning:

  1. Research CD covers. What information is included on the cover of CDs of this kind? (hint: we're not talking about the CDs that bands produce with their music on) You need to know what might go on the CD cover before you can produce it.
  2. Think about the colours and fonts you might use to make your CD cover attractive to the target audience.
  3. Create a Visualisation Diagram to show your ideas for the CD cover

Now make your CD Cover using the template provided below.

To help you with your research, here's an actual educational CD ROM cover that I was sent. It works a little bit differently to the style you have to produce, but it's a good starting point (click it to enlarge).

Collectable Card

Kids love to collect things like cards. DM New Media wants to get them talking about e-safety by producing a set of collectable cards for kids to swap and collect.

Each card will feature a different e-safety buddy. Your task is to produce a card for your e-safety buddy. The card needs to include your e-safety buddy giving some helpful e-safety advice. It then needs to have other information on it so that the card will be attractive to the target audience. It must also have the web address of the Think, Click project on it (www.thinkclick.org.uk) and the name of the project.

The card needs to be suitable for printing by a commercial printer. It needs to be of a suitable size and resolution. It needs to be one sided.

Again, you need to do some planning:

  1. Research Collectable cards. What information is included on them? How are they laid out?
  2. Think about the colours and fonts you might use to make your card attractive to the target audience.
  3. Create a Visualisation Diagram to show your ideas for the card
