Ellen Winhammar has produced a children’s picture book about two frogs: Malley, the friendly protagonist, and his friend Lelou, the grumpy Natterjack toad. The book starts as a happy wholesome story, but gradually gets darker and more disturbing. The colours at the beginning, as well as surrounding the title and blurb, are bright and colourful, and the speech bubbles are vibrant and prominent. As the tale progresses, however, they slowly get darker and muddier, and the speech bubbles get less prominent until they disappear. The backgrounds also change, becoming harsh and more aggressive.
Ella Woodcock’s project is about “collective joy”, and is inspired by the places the artist would go to before the pandemic to enjoy music.
Designer Nicole Siddle is inspired by the versatility of street style and views it as a way for people to express who they are without having to speak.
