Your Digestive System

Concept Overview

The aim of this project to redesign an already exciting visual explanation for the digestive system for children. My goal in this design is to eliminate the extraneous load that been created in the current design. I will be focusing on highlighting the coherence principle by introducing the digestive system organs with the main function of each one. The objective is to introduce the digestive system, not the digestion prosses as this would be a different learning goal. Also, I think it is very important to show the real shape of the digestive system to children instead of a representative image to establish a connection for a future learning objective that related to the same topic.
