HelloDesign is a kit meant to teach the basic principles of design to children, through the idea of “learning by making.” Technology being a very important part of the future and nowadays of a child’s life, this kit uses tools that will teach them to create designs both digitally and physically. It motivates the children not to overlook what they can make with their hands, without denying them the use of technology. The kit is made of three main platforms: the books, the app/website and the workbook, and they all work together. The books and the app will teach the children about color, shape and type in a fun way and will encourage them to use these elements by making their own design in the workbook. The dice and the cards are a way to give more guidelines to the designs. Overall, this kit is giving children the tools they need to be able to create their own drawings.
