Uncle Wolf

This is my final project from the MA Design Practice course at Glyndwr University. As an Illustrator and Graphic Designer, I have always been drawn to how minimalism can communicate complex ideas and narratives. I am influenced and inspired by contemporary illustrators such as Chris Haughton and Jon Klassen, and my work explores the use of simple shapes, colour and composition to convey emotions.

Working with Adobe Illustrator and After Effects, I have created an animated e-book with sound for children aged 3-6 years based on the Italian folktale Uncle Wolf , which I have adapted for a modern audience. My aim is for the e-book to be used as an educational tool that children can learn from, so I have tried to evoke the various strong emotions created within the story.
