Book Week Merchandise Design for the CBCA Book week 2020
Each year since 1945 the CBCA has brought children and books together across Australia through CBCA Book Week. During this time schools and public libraries spend one glorious week celebrating books and Australian children’s authors and illustrators. Classroom teachers, teacher librarians and public librarians create colourful displays, develop activities, run competitions and tell stories relating to a theme to highlight the importance of reading. You will often see parades with students dressed as their favourite book character.
In 2020, for the second year in a row, I had the honour to work with CBCA to create the merchandise, this time based on illustration created by award winning illustrator, Gwen Perkins.
The merchandise includes:
- Theme Poster
- Shortlist book poster design
- Bookmark design
- Bunting design
- Badge Pin Design
- Activity Sheets (with Gwen’s illustration)
- Social media tiles
- and many more!
