CBBC – Tracy Beaker Returns

CBBC’s programme, Tracy Beaker Returns, is about a child who grew up in a care home referred to as “The Dumping Ground” returning as a careworker. Tracy is loud, fiery and always in trouble but all she really wants is a home and a family to love. BBC is looking for a digital “home” for Tracy Beaker Returns to sit within their website and as with all other microsite for BBC, it needs to follow their GEL grid guideline.

Working as the sole designer on this project, I was provided with a deck of amazing illustration by famous children book illustrator, Nick Sharratt. My task was to create the wireframe, high-fidelity design as well as animated banners to sit within the site. I was also responsible for providing the assets and guideline to the front-end developer.
