5 - 10 Year Old ChildrenGeneralize

There is a big divide between the interest of children closer to 5 to the ones closer to 10 years old. In addition there is no exact midpoint where one can specify when these interest, likes and dislikes change. Children closer to the age of 10 begin will try and imitate adult behaviour, while children closer to the age of 5 are all about fun and games.

Through researching how marketers target this age group there are certain recurring themes.

The use of bright colors, a clearly defined contrast between them and big playful clear fonts tend to appear on the majority of the me-dia used to target children.

Additionally a fantasy setting, the use of animals (illustrated and real) as well as superhero themes are also recurring.

5 - 10 Year Old ChildrenTypefaces

“Typography Design for Children” - ProjectProfessor Sue Walker - Department of Typography and Graphic Commu-nicationUniversity of ReadingIn short: Find out what typography works for children through perfor-mance and preference test in regards to typefaces and the use of hori-zontal/vertical space.

Results:• Serif and Sans Serif share same

legibility• Infant characters seem more

familiar to children, hence easier to read

• A large x-height is easier to read

• No condensed or expanded typefaces

• Generous leading (4-6pts)• Ample contrast between type

and background.• Decorative headlines - jumping

baseline• Word-spacing, character spac-

ing and vertical spacing are not as important to children as typeface and type size.

IdeasDhiarrea of the Mind

Dominant IdeaA by standing in front of a class ready to narrate/an-swer a question. Camera switches between and closes in on the face of the boy and the rest of the class. While class looks hostile and boy seems nervous a girl smiles back at him and he finds the confidence to carry on with the answer.

Based on:LearningConfident in ones knowledge and abilitiesProving that you can be part of or be able to stand out within a group

Concept ChallengeA bull goes crazy in a bullring. Door opens and the matador walks in. Camera shows a kind of stare-down between the matador and the bull. The matadors face can’t be seen till after the bull charges at him, where it is revealed that a child is the matador.

Ideas... for further development

Night time clearly shown - increase fear of the dark sensation.

Gun will go away.Child will hold a power stance pose. Possible additions:Cape (superheroes)Warrior outfitWizard outfit

Boogie monster cowering under the bed.

Desk lamp

Slogan will change probably to something like “Just Face it”. Spin off on Nike “Just do it”

Teddy bear will be replaced by the Nike sign Using Nike as a company came forth because of the possible spin off on the slogan, and since they don’t directly advertise to children they can use this as a means to create brand loyalty. Confident children tend to be more active, as Nike is all about the action it can work in the long run.

Desk. The purpose is to increase depth perseption. More furniture will be added on the other side of the im-age.
