OECD Education

The Future of Education: graphic and animation

The world is changing at a rapid rate. To achieve the future we want – a future of well-being for all – the OECD and others have developed the Learning Compass 2030. This is a framework for learning that creates a common language about education goals and orients students towards future well-being. In developing this framework, the OECD worked with policy makers, researchers, school leaders, teachers, students, social partners, and international organisations from around the world.

Lushomo’s aim was to help conceptualise and visualise the Learning Compass. To start this process, we held a number of conversations with our client and developed sketches to fully understand the Learning Compass and its aims. Following this consultative process, we created a number of design styles for our client to choose from. We then created a short explainer animation for those not entirely familiar with the concept of the Learning Compass.

OECD wanted to create a simple explainer video for people who were not entirely familiar with the concept of the Learning Compass. To do this, we created an animation outlining its key components. The animation was built around the visual of the Learning Compass framework, which we worked with OECD to create.

The animation used the same graphic elements as the static learning compass image, and highlighted the main compass framework components one at a time over the course of two minutes to explain it in an accessible way.

The process of creating the Learning Compass 2030 graphic itself started with conversations and sketches to ensure we fully conveyed the highly conceptual framework. Following this, different graphic styles were developed and the chosen design was then finessed.

We also created additional assets and branding for the new Learning Compass website.
