15 Real Products Created from Children’s Wildest Ideas

Inventions5

Awesome “Inventors!” project by British designer and inventor Dominic Wilcox (who we posted about last year). After gathering over 600 ideas from over 450 children across Sunderland and South Tyneside, UK, Wilcox whittled down the entries to 60 and challenged local manufacturers to create exactly what the kids envisioned. See more of the original imaginings paired with the real-life creations below!

“Childline: First Step” by Buck

Childline: First Step by Buck
This is an outstanding animation, maybe the most engaging piece I’ve seen this year (despite being mostly text). BUCK directs this spot for ChildLine a free, confidential, 24-hour counseling service for children in the UK. It’s tricky to portray a heavy topic like sexual abuse without making it feel really heavy handed, but somehow they did it. I can’t remember the last time I saw something where the words felt this alive.

Watch “Childline: First Step” below!

File Magazine / Issue #1

File Magazine is without question the coolest publication to show up on my doorstep thus far. I love large-format mags and this bi-annual publication outta the UK is roughly 12″ x 15.5″. The cover is a thick card stock and the inside pages are actually newsprint, but don’t come across cheap like you’d think. The page layouts are beautifully minimal – this thing is a real work of art. This first issue comes with a limited print by Geoff McFetridge and a DVD with over two hours of shorts films, music videos and interviews. In short, this magazine is legit!
