Millions of children throughout the UK visit the BBC Bitesize website each year to help them revise for their exams.

Error has helped to develop the next generation of illustrations for the Bitesize website which is launching in late 2013.

The project was to rethink and rework the graphics accompanying the learning material and bring them up to scratch with a new stylistic direction. Illustrations, maps, graphs, isometric projections: they all needed to fit the well defined style guide, and get an injection of creative flair.

Throughout, this endeavour required a bumper helping of organisation and dedication. Hundreds of images were assessed to make sure their content best conveyed the learning outcome.

From there, the process of crafting the illustrations entailed three rounds of feedback from different stakeholders and recreating them for desktop tablet and mobile – all the while aesthetically following a distinct style and maintaining pixel-perfect accuracy. Gosh, we need to have a breather just thinking about it!

There was plenty of scope for creative flair; in fact, our designs were so well received that we have helped to shape the style guide for mapping across all subjects.
