We were approached to design a children’s book to bring the worlds attention to the fact that parts of the Soviet Union are in extreme poverty. Oxfam had noticed that communities in parts of Russia were making these amazing children’s toys. So they had a lovely idea of turning the toys into characters for a children’s book. We were commissioned to bring the story to life. The result is a book full of charm and delight with a very original exotic eastern European feel.
Working with the Solution is always an enjoyable and inspiring process – the creative response to the brief, attention to detail and quality of design, regardless of the scale of the project, never disappoint.
