Positive Behaviour for Learning is a Ministry of Education initiative that aims to address problem behaviour, improve children's wellbeing and increase educational achievement. As a resource for teachers with young students who are learning about recognising and expressing their feelings, Foundry designed a range of illustrated character cards each portraying one of twenty different emotions.
We developed an illustration style that students would relate to and feel comfortable with. We drew on established expressions, pop culture, and real-life references to make the emotions easily recognisable. We used bright colours and dynamic linework to ensure the resources engaged with learners.
