The task was to set to create an online, educational communication tool for Scottish Autism. As the spectrum for autism is wide the site evolved to include four characters at different stages of their lives; on different levels of the spectrum.
We had always envisioned this to be an illustration site & we were put in touch with David; an 18 year old budding game designer. He had a great illustration style and I worked with him in the studio to bring this project to life from his sketches. David has autism and Asperger’s syndrome.
The site is parallax and the client wanted to keep it as accessible as possible. We animated sections of the site so it is semi-interactive. They have been using it for over a year now as an effective education tool and it won The Drum Scottish Creative Award for Website 2015.
