We've been working with the fabulous Into Film and magic Light Pictures on an app that we're happy to say has now been released. Into Film Storymaker - The Gruffalo Edition lets young children remix and experiment with one of the most beloved children's characters and stories of all time. Designed with the classroom in mind the app has a strong narrative literacy focus which when combined with the Gruffalo made for our idea of a dream project.

No not Jamie Cullum the piano guy... Jamie Cullen the illustrator whose work is bold, colourful and inventive. Yep, this guy is definitely on our list of artists we need to find a good reason to work with.

We stumbled across his work for the first time on the fabulous YCN website. If you're looking for ninja illustrators, designers and artists then they are the bees knees.
