I've been studying the impacts of video games on children and young people and get asked to do presentations regularly. This is now ramping up and I need a number of visualisations to assist in the communication of this message. This is the first illustration i'd like to get done.
I need an illustration/photo that visualises the benefits and concerns of playing video games. This illustration will be used in presentations, on a website and in infographics.
The benefits are:
Cognitive development (strategy development, problem solving skills, decision making skills under stress)
Social development (video game community, building relationships through video games, connecting online)
Emotional development (expressing yourself, experimenting with identity through avatars)
Motivational development (using video games to learn skills, engage young people in positive change...)
The concerns are:
Excessive video game playing (leading to bad health, school drop-out, relationship breakdown, isolation)
Link with mental health (Depression, social anxiety)
Screen time for children is linked to behavioural issues
Gambling games/apps mimic real life gambling and may lower the barriers of getting into real gambling
Violence and inappropriate content in video games
This is obviously a super short list/explanation of the benefits and concerns. If you need more specific information please email me.
I'm trying to raise awareness about this in a balanced/neutral way. The message is that video games can be good or bad for you, depending on who you are and what you're dealing with. It's not just one or the other.
The illustration needs to be appropriate for professional use and be family friendly.
Feel free to email ideas before actual illustrating
