Elizabeth Carefoot artwork and graphics

Series consists of artwork and graphic materials created by Elizabeth Carefoot, a graphic designer and illustrator who worked at LIDC and its predecessors for over thirty years (ca. 1972-2003). Carefoot worked with SFU departments and faculty members to create illustrations and graphics for their works relating to university teaching and research. Most of Carefoot's output over the years was not transferred to Archives, and this series represents only a small fraction of her SFU output - a single box of design files that were transferred to the Archives in 2011 after the dissolution of LIDC by one of its successor bodies, the Teaching and Learning Centre (TLC).

The files cover a range of projects ca. 1980-1992. Projects documented include illustrations for course workbooks in Criminology and the Faculty of Education; publications on bees by Mark Winston, a faculty member in Department of Biological Sciences; label designs for SFU Heavenly Honey; and the 1986 SFU Christmas Card.

Document types include drawings and sketches, page mockups and transparencies, book illustrations, posters, cards and photographic negatives and prints.
