Happy Apple were recently commissioned by London based Unsaid Communications, to create a set of illustrations to enhance three leaflets for schools and teachers explaining the dangers of corporal punishment. The leaflets are to be used by a selection of NGOs. The illustrations needed to work well across different ages, cultures and ethnicities. They also needed to describe a potentially sensitive and emotional subject without dramatising it. We adopted the use of naive figurative silhouettes, similar to those of Saul Bass, to visually describe the topic with a seriousness and delicacy.
