Little Inventors

Meet our Magnificent Makers

Little Inventors wants children to open their eyes to the world of invention and creativity. But beyond the invention drawings, there is a unique opportunity for children and makers, designers and artists to come together and collaborate to bring children’s imagination to life.

By taking children’s ideas seriously and presenting them in a professional manner through collaboration with skilled makers, we will help showcase children’s original ideas, perspectives and voices.

We also want to challenge the skills and experience of adult makers, and encourage them to push beyond their own limits by engaging with the highly imaginative and unhindered minds of young children.

Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland, U.K.

I'm an animator and model-maker based in Northumberland. I combine digital animation techniques with more traditional methods like stop motion. I enjoy sharing my skills with others - I'm an Associate Lecturer at Northumbria University and an animation mentor with TICE - introducing children to what it is like working in creative industries.

Ellie works with all kinds of materials from wood to clay. She often uses waste materials, such as plastic washed up on the beach or recycled glass bottles. She likes to get her hands dirty and try out all kinds of making techniques to help her come up with her designs.

My name is Octavio, I'm 28 and I'm from Córdoba, Argentina. 
I have a degree from Architecture College, and I've even worked as an architect for a short period of time. 
Then I derived into illustration, and more precisely Concept Art, which is the field I currently work in as a freelancer.
Other than that, I like coffee on a cloudy/chilly sunday, reading my favorite book or watching a classic movie :)

Taipei, Taiwan, Netherlands

I am an artist and a designer based in the Netherlands and Taiwan. I am very interested in exploring people's imaginations and their socio-political impact on society, technology, and the future. I usually use my skills in industrial and interactive design to develop unique tools and experiences through which questions these imaginary figures and narratives that humans create. Aliens are one of the human imaginations that I am investigating at the moment. Besides my own project, I also love to share my skills and experiences with others and make diverse imaginations to be seen and celebrated.

High & Strong attention to the details. - Paradise is in the details - 

I am Industrial Designer, since 2007 I have combined the curriculum with the academic program of graphic design where I developed and acquired new skills in my professional career. 

With a big LOVE to the letters and great passion for the arts, specially the attraction to the fascinating world of calligraphy and lettering, I like to create compositions based on the experimentation of different sources and techniques as well as sizes and surfaces.
