In the summer of 2020, we worked with The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families to create a series of tiled illustrations for a section of their website about common difficulties in early years children.
We opted for a soft, hand drawn, pastel style inspired by paler versions of the Anna Freud's brand colours. As the illustrations depicted sensitive subject matter, a group of expert psychologists, parents and early years workers were consulted on the content for each drawing.
Early Years in Mind is a free online network for early years practitioners. The network provides easy to read and easy to use guidance on supporting the mental health of babies, young children and their families. The network was developed by mental health experts and shares practical and clinical expertise, and advice on using attachment-informed practice.
