    Client based project to re-design a text book.
Treasured Island is an out-of-print environmental education textbook for teachers of the government schools in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India. The 1st edition was put out by Kalpavriksh and ANET around 10 years ago and is now outdated.
The task was to redesign the layout of the book and create contemporary illustrations that is sensitive to the context in which the book will operate.  
I worked on the illustrations for the Who's who section in the book, that enables students to identify and locate organisms belonging to the various ecosystems.
