An inspirational art and design resource, ‘Sacred Art’ was created by the Churches Conservation Trust to commemorate George Frederick Bodley and Charles Eamer Kempe, two key figures of the Gothic Revival, on the centenary of their deaths.
Working alongside the trust’s Education Department and writer David Walmsley, we designed and delivered a coherent, easy to follow primary learning CD-ROM, that inspires curriculum-based work in schools throughout the UK.
Brimming with a wealth of thought-provoking imagery, we introduced user-friendly interfaces and navigation system that allows all teachers, including non IT specialists to deliver the program with ease and assurance.
By applying our design and multimedia skills we transformed stimulating photography, teacher notes and lesson plans into accessible onscreen resources for use on classroom interactive whiteboards and individual PCs.
Our brief, develop a software resource to involve children with the exhibits housed in the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art. The software would realise the educational concept of Anne Curtis, Education Consultant and founder of Shoo Fly Publishing.
A year in the making, what a delight when a copy ‘hot off the press’ of the News Real Teachers Resource Pack, published by Tyneside Cinema arrived on our desk.
Prior to launching Jam Jar Studios, we supported Shoo Fly Publishing in our roles as Software Development Manager and Senior Designer. Since 2003 we have worked with Shoo Fly to establish a brand now at the fore-front of educational publishing; one which oozes creativity, high quality design/content and demonstrates that learning can be fun as well as helping us to grow.
