A 4 metre by 3 metre illustrated wall mural and room numbers for a new set of EF worldwide schools initially opening in China. The mural incorporates characters from EF’s own teaching material, various buildings from around the world and a few strange happenings for the children to discover. As the schools teach a large age range of children the wall decorations had to appeal to both small children and teenagers.

Topically, the theme was ‘austerity’ – hence a bit of a run-down feel to the whole thing. It was also an excuse to unleash a series of puns unto the world, something that I’m a huge fan of.
You can buy a back copy of this issue here.
