Making the page look messy. Looks as if
paper is stuck on, and dirt already on the
page. This could make it seem more fun and
child friendly, not serious.
Text is in a clear easy to read font with
rounded edges in order to make it easier for
children to read. Blue is also a contrasting
colour to the yellow of the page, making the
text stand out much more.
Quite a small depth of field used to take
photos of the food. This draws your attention
to the bowl of food, which is meant to be the
most important part.

page design would all appeal to children.

“recipes for children and adults to prepare
and enjoy together”.
They have used a list format for the
instructions, and have used wide spacing
between each line to make it easier for
children to read.
On this recipe card they have used a lot of the colour green. Usually
this colour is associated with the earth, plants and vegetables. This
colour could have been used for the recipe cards to signify how the
company is promoting eating healthy and vegetarian, and being

Things people will want to see most such as

orange used is the same as in the logo. So
using it for the recipe cards will remind the
reader of the brand.

As well as using Christmas decoration shapes, they have
incorporated gold festive patterns, with swirls, bells and gold and
white sparkles. The pattern at the bottom of the cover between
the image and the text has been used to separate the image and
title from the main text.

They have made the layout neater by
sectioning off different parts of the
text. As well as the different font
separating the ingredients from the

creative side of people, and to add

the image is very fitting.
The image at the bottom shows
someone eating the noodles.
Though you cannot see who is
picking up the food, you can see
the chopsticks are raised about to
dig into the food. This seems more

food, as it is suggesting just to get
stuck in and eat rather than

This recipe is set out a little less like a
list. Though they do list the ingredients
they don’t separate the method into
sets. This makes it slightly more effort
to read than if the method was set out
like a list.
The writer has used chatty informal
language in the first few lines. For

informal words, that maybe would
typically used when talking to friends.
