Contest Brief

I am working on an animal welfare project aimed at improving the welfare for laboratory mice. For this I need to have a nice looking poster or infographic with a guide on how to pick them up more gently. I will need to have some illustrations based on photos, and some text added. I would like to have the illustrations separately as well as on the poster.

I like coral/orange-red colours, so that might be nice as a background color if it fits. If some other color is better according to you, that is fine.

I want a professional but friendly look, not overly childish or overly strict, it should attract both technical staff and academics. Not a cluttered design. The illustrations do not need to be identical to the pictures if you would like to adjust or change things. It is good if it can be printed in A3 format. Portrait or Landscape does not matter. Please ask if you have any questions or if anything is unclear - or if I have missed something! :)

POSTER/INFOGRAPHIC INFO:
The headline should be: "Handle with care"
Optional header or main focus picture: [login to view URL] OR [login to view URL] OR [login to view URL]
Optional subtitle: "A guide to switching handling methods"

Text for [login to view URL] picture: Provide a tunnel as enrichment in the home cage
Text for [login to view URL] picture: Guide the mice into the tunnel when picking them up
Text for [login to view URL] picture: Give them a choice whether to go in or out (& if you need to get them out, tip them gently backwards onto a safe place)
Text for [login to view URL] and/or [login to view URL] picture: To lift the mice with your hands, scoop them up gently and let them move freely in your hand
Text for [login to view URL] picture: You can close your hands loosely around the mouse if you are concerned that it might jump from your hands
OPTIONAL: text for [login to view URL] picture: Well-handled mice are likely to approach you voluntarily

If I get good entries I might pick a winner earlier than 7 days.
Thank you!

    Hello :) Am I understanding correctly that you want illustrations drawn from the photos and not the actual photos on the poster?

      Thank you and you were very clear, I was just unsure when I saw the many entries with photos. Please could you take a look at my progress entry #28 ? If it is too 'cartoony' I can change it :)

    Hi everyone! As a clarification, I am after illustrations drawn from the photos, not using the actual photos on the poster. It also does not need numbering. Thanks!
