Once there was enough information, the copy was further developed and the elements were placed in their assigned locations. The screens were fully developed before applying the final style guide.
The visual identity was mainly focused on effectively informing the audience. Because of this, illustrations were a big part of the project as they heavily support the information. They also make the learning experience more engaging for the users.
