Hampshire Fare, the not-for-profit group promoting local food and drink, asked us to create a photo opportunity board. They champion over 350 producers, venues and shops, so they had a very specific brief that required the illustration to incorporate as many elements as possible, allow for three face holes, and be suitable for easy construction/collapsing and transportation.
Working together with Splash Display
, a bespoke unit was designed that made the building and moving of it possible, so all that was left was to create an illustration that featured branding, social media messages and logos, a producer and a chef, examples of produce and livestock, a sponsorship logo and relevant cottage, and a cartoon realisation of Hampshire Fare’s hog. Fortunately, this sort of detailed drawing is something we enjoy getting involved with!
The result was revealed at a recent Hampshire Fare networking event at the White Star Tavern in Southampton, where plenty of Hampshire Fare members took full advantage of the new board. Look out for it around Hampshire at events in the coming year.
We're pleased to announce that Quincey Quokka's Quest is now available as an interactive ebook.
Through this book children help Quincey through a series of activities that require them to remember, control their actions and exert control over their thinking. In doing so, children gain valuable experience in support of their cognitive development. This app is an interactive ebook version of Quincey Quokka's Quest, which allows children to continue interacting with the book even if an adult reader is not available to share it with them. Complete with character voices and animations, Quincey's world is now as immersive as ever.
Quincey Quokka's Quest was first developed as a picture book to support children's cognitive development. The abilities it aims to foster have been shown to play an essential role in setting the stage for a broad range of outcomes in later life (e.g., school readiness, academic achievement, social and emotional competence). Quincey Quokka's Quest aims to promote the development of these abilities, giving children the best possible start to life.
Quincey Quokka's Quest has been featured by numerous media outlets (e.g., ABC News, WIN News in Australia). It is also the subject of peer-reviewed research published in Educational Psychology Review, as well as ongoing research, which outlines its benefits.
To download the app please visit Apple’s App Store.
