New Book out in September 2011: Skint!

Over the past year and half, we've been involved in a top secret project, which we can now reveal!

Scottish Book Trust, in partnership with Scottish Government, commissioned us to work on the book Skint! in collaboration with actor, director and playwright Gowan Calder.

Skint! is an interactive, learner-centred money management resource for 16 to 26 year olds in supported youth groups.

It's a thought-provoking and interactive book with mutiple choice endings, with a colouful, engaging and fun script dialogue provided by Gowan, and graphic novel illustrations provided by us. We also had great fun working on the cover and book design! We'll be posting some samples from the interior pages here soon.

It's been a real pleasure working on this challenging project, as part of a great team of really dedicated people! We've loved every minute of it!

Now we're looking forward to the launch of the project on September 8th 2011 at the International Adult Literacies Conference in Scotland.

Skint! will also be available through Scottish Book Trust’s website as a downloadable PDF, and in accessible formats (sign language and audio versions).
