Hi everyone in this sub-reddit,
I am doing the final year project of my graphic design course. I am currently doing a project proposal which proposes a new approach to school books by using graphic design such as simplifying the layout, better visual hierarchy and typography – making information easier to deliver to student by using the power of graphic design.
The way that I see most school-book editions in most school and university lacks the integration of graphic design elements. In my country, Vietnam, the school books here are terrible at engaging students to study. Most of them have boring chart and huge block of text that only serve one purpose: contents sit there to be read, not to be understood.
The reason I want to do this survey is to further explore my knowledge about school books in other countries and collect other people opinions about books in education in general, and how graphic designers can improve educational books ?
