The Junkyard

research imagery – manipulate imagery to produce design

We held a big, all-day workshop where many of the young people got together to work on scripting, illustration design, performance and recording, sound design, coding and marketing.

One small team worked to design things like the app logo, the Junkyard and the things in it with David’s assistance and advice.

They also worked on designing the toxic organic spider that Pye discovers in the old wooden outhouse in the Junkyard.
