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.
Tom devised a bespoke software package ‘Art Creator’, with user-friendly interfaces and software tools to be used by children within the education facility of the gallery. Art Creator software tools are simple and intuitive and allow children to explore drawing, pattern making and create new work inspired by the array of available images.
The published resource brand was extended onto software packaging, resource user manual and marketing materials.
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.
Working alongside a team of highly skilled and creative professionals, Emma created the exterior graphics for the Seven Stories illustrated contemporary façade.
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.
