Science Apprentice books
Posted 6 years ago and submitted by Martin Beckett | Share link:


I have recently worked on a series of children’s books about science for UCD (University College Dublin) and funded by SFI (Science Foundation Ireland). These five books coincided with science week and were issued as a set of collectable books with the Irish Independent (Ireland’s leading newspaper).
The project was challenging, doing all the illustrations as well as laying out and designing every book was a great experience and I learnt a lot about science in the process.
Each book has contents contributed from scientists all over Ireland and in the case of ‘Space’, directly from ESA (European Space Agency) itself!

“Martin designed, illustrated and formatted five books covers for me (front and full covers). He also completed a logo redesign. His ideas were imaginative and practical, resulting in a cohesive set of covers that I couldn’t have envisaged myself. Throughout the process, he was extremely responsive and helpful, and always willing to make tweaks to the designs as requested. I’ll definitely be using Martin’s services again in the future."
