Acorn Brand Architecture and Color Palette
The first semester of my fourth year at Parsons was spent heavily on Adobe Illustrator creating the foundation for Acorn through the children's books and board game. Acorn was created initially through a set of illustrations for the children's book section, with stories that took real-life characteristics from the animals used and that were applicable to real-world examples of gender in family life. Alongside these illustrations for the children's books was the development of a board game that simulated life through the lens of gender equality. The second semester of the fourth year was spent alternating between Adobe InDesign and Adobe Illustrator to create a variety of additions, edits, and integrations to the already existing Open Books Open Minds branch of Acorn and the Choice or Chance board game while also creating and developing the Partner Pairs memory card game. Finally Adobe Photoshop was used to create presentations of the products.
