A Colourful Life

A colourful life is a really special project, creating colouring books for people with dementia. We used photos submitted by family members of people suffering from dementia and created bespoke colouring books for them. As they coloured, they began to remember and reminisce about the past. It is thought that this exercise helps to reduce dementia symptoms. Case study video to come! We went through many designs before settling on this final simple design. Using dementia research we found that bold contrasting colours and clear text was the best route to go down. I have included the previous designs below.
