An interactive experience in print

Sterling Publishing Inside Series: Earthquakes, Lightning, Volcanoes, Weather

Sterling Publishing asked Li’l Robin to take on the redesign of their science series, Inside. Geared towards young readers, the books explain natural phenomena in titles like Inside Earthquakes, Inside Lightning, and Inside Volcanoes. The books consist of foldout pages, making the experience highly interactive.

As the series already existed, one of our main goals was to improve upon the overarching look and feel. We simplified the design to create a graphically clean, fun and engaging system. To appeal to children, we used a bright color palette and elements like “bubbles” for fun facts. The intricate charts and diagrams are balanced with large, dramatic images of the phenomena.
