As part of my work on the iBESTT app at the University of Washington, I create illustrations and graphics for use in the app’s training videos.
The iBESTT app is designed to help school teams working with students by training teachers to identify and modify problem behaviors. Because it can be difficult to film children exhibiting problem behaviors in a realistic manner that protects their privacy, we decided to use illustrations to demonstrate problem behaviors.
The process I use to create these images starts out with a rough sketch showing what the various characters are supposed to be doing in the video. Then I create the images using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. The final images are added to the training videos by our videographer.
These sample images are taken from the iBESTT videos and show teachers and coaches working together with children to improve behavior problems in a school setting.Tags:Illustrations
