|This weekend Phin, Mini and I have been having great fun making our very own idyllic island scenes on my iPad. We've been enticed to ditch the paper pens and design our very own Boden Summer Catalogue cover, because Boden and Macmillan Children's books have teamed up on a global creative campaign to raise money for children's charities with the help of budding young designers like my Phin and Mini. |
Simply click onto the Boden website and learn how to create your very own cover for their new catalogue. There's a step-by-step video which shows you how to click and drag all the icons to make your very own fantasy island. Unfortunately the competition is only for the under 12, but the top 10 designs will receive £500 to spend at Boden as well as an iPad Mini and a framed copy of their cover. And for every cover designed, Boden will donate £1 to one of my favourite charities - Kids Company, which provides support to vulnerable children in the UK. $1 to No Kid Hungry for designs made in America and 1€ to Ein Herz fur Kinder for those done in Germany. And each child that enters will be mailed a unique copy of the Mini Boden summer catalogue featuring the cover that they designed!
|The competition is being judged by the fantastic children's illustrator Lydia Monks and head designer at Mini Boden Tara Ryan. Winners will be announced at the end of March 2014 however the deadline for entries is March 7th so get cracking!|
