Exploring the concept of Type As Image through illustrative methods, this themed alphabet was designed to appear in John Jenkins’ Encyclopedia of Leisure and Outdoor Recreation. Stemming from a personal interest I had in sport as a child and teenager, the objective was to recreate the fun I associated with these activities. I aimed to increase the visual appeal of the encyclopedia as a valuable educational resource for children, teenagers and young adults. Illustrations were created using watercolour paint and fine liner pens to outline, bringing the letters and their respective concepts to life, and presenting a stimulating and engaging arrangement.
