Summer 2018

Over summer 2018, I had the privilege to work intern-turned-freelance with the incredible e-learning startup; the Night Zookeepers. Inspiring children to read and write through creativity, the brand hosts a great selection of materials to help make learning fun and engaging for 6–11 year-olds across the globe. In a time when the arts in education are having reduced budgets, it's a brilliant way of keeping children creative, whilst learning key literacy skills.

 

Most recently, they launched a new TV show and microsite (Jan 2019) on Sky Kids to go alongside their e-learning platform, and fantastic range of books, workshops, lesson materials, and other collateral; many of which I had the pleasure of working on alongside creative director Buzz Burman and founder Joshua Davidson. Children can also contribute a great deal to the Night Zoo, whereby their own creations and stories can be published alongside the books and fully animated into the TV show. Awesome, right?!

 

Below you’ll find a little snippet of what I worked on, and what I helped with. Since Buzz and I were the only members of the design team, I had the amazing opportunity to work independently and shape some of these projects. All in all, it was a brilliant learning experience that I’m proud to have been a part of. 

Check them out and get involved!
