“Now You’re Talking!” Illustrated Booklet

Designed by Legal Aid BC's In-House Team

 

This printed booklet artistically unifies 15 picture stories featuring scenarios with characters sharing concerns about family law issues. The booklet achieves a graphic novel feel, capturing readers’ situations and leading them to relevant information on the associated website. Colour-coding used for five distinct sections on the website is applied throughout the booklet to achieve consistency and easy topic identification. A subtle numbering guide was added to clarify panel order and improve readability. Introductory pages feature characters from each story and brief descriptions. The creative use of speech bubbles highlights key information for each topic, with interspersed graphic elements helping to break-up text-heavy resource lists. Legal advocates and other stakeholders in the justice system have responded positively to the booklet as an effective tool for public legal education.
