The background

The world is changing at a rapid rate. To achieve the future we want – a future of well-being for all – the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (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.

The brief

To publicise the OECD Learning Compass through design and animation.

Our response

Lushomo conceptualised how to visualise the Learning Compass. To start this process, we held a series of conversations with our client and developed sketches to fully understand the Learning Compass and its aims. Following this consultative process, we created design styles for our client to choose from. In the chosen style, the Learning Compass came to life as an illustrated, interactive image map. We then created a short explainer animation for those unfamiliar with the concept of the Learning Compass.

Interactive graphic
The Learning Compass 2030 graphic was developed after a series of iterations with the client to ensure it fully conveyed the highly conceptual framework. The graphic was then coded as an SVG ‘image map’ with hover states that allow users to interact with the different components of the image and click to access additional information.

Explainer video
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 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.

Video and animation production

We created a series of animations to promote the explainer video and Learning Compass 2030 graphic.
