Do you mean the pastel illustrations? We tried very hard to create
custom illustrations that would appeal to primary school ages while
not turning off teenagers. It's a difficult balancing act, one that I
think our illustrator did well with. The illos are kid-like, but
with a high enough quality to convey professionalism and depth.
Similar styles are used in corporate marketing and elsewhere ... to
convey a friendlier, more human, appeal.
