What We Do

Today’s children are growing up in a digital era. Technology surrounds them and seems to be changing at an ever increasing rate.

This is why it is important for us to have our own digital media team in-house. The team includes video crews who specialise in professionally interviewing and filming children, family andprofessionals within the child related, education and media environments, as well as being experienced at producing documentaries and short informational films.

Our digital designers are able to create web sites and interactive software worlds and environments as well as games to grab and maintain the attention of children of all ages.

Here are some examples of our recent work:

CWDC 2008 – Children and Young People meet the Common Core

A range of publications working with Children and Young People’s designs.

Teaching the children and young people in an informal manner how print and design works and affects the reader. Then working in partnership with all parties to produce professional outputs for a wide national audience.

Producing results that stun the children who worked on them; the organisation that commissioned Tomorrow’s Child; the Government who initially had the idea, and finally the end-user – the reader who sees the poster or reads the leaflet.
