Harvard Graduate School of Education asked Ruth Rowland to contribute to their Winter issue of Ed. Magazine. The result is this series of illustrations for the cover, a double page spread and a half page illustration for an article about mathematics reform in the USA.
Ruth says "I enjoyed combining chalkboard with squared paper backgrounds, numerals and equations to illustrate the piece. The design team's simple but witty idea for the cover, a pseudo-math equation, was carefully rendered to read both as an equation and the subject of the article. Inside the magazine, I retained the simple colour palette to keep the more complex illustrations eye-catching and legible.
