TLNT Holdings has teamed with the Design and Technology Association and Mojo Nation to launch a toy design challenge for young people aged between 11 and 18.
Housed on TLNT’s new digital platform, Untitled, the brief asks young people to design a new collectible toy range.
Each submission will be reviewed by Mojo Nation and the D&T Association, with five selected creators – represented by their teachers – being given a chance to pitch their concepts at this year’s Mojo Pitch event.
The toy challenge is the first of many exciting briefs for young people to engage with on Untitled, with more in the pipeline across multiple industries.
“Untitled was borne out of our desire to inspire and enable young creatives in exciting real-world opportunities,” said Clare McKeeve, CEO of TLNT Holdings.
“Through enabling the next generation of talent to hone their skills and give them access to unrivalled industry experts, we aim to instil and heighten their creative passion. We cannot wait to see the fresh perspectives on this thrilling brief”
Ryan Ball, Director at the Design & Technology Association, added: “We are really excited to be partnering with Mojo Nation on this Untitled brief.
“We feel really strongly that contextualising design and technology is a fantastic way to bring content alive. This brief brings with it some fantastic opportunities and we are really looking forward to seeing students’ D&T skills and creativity shine!”
Billy Langsworthy, Co-Founder of Mojo Nation, said: “We’re delighted to help Untitled and the Design & Technology Association with this exciting new initiative. Hopefully, it can kick-start an interest in toy design among the participants and help usher in an exciting new generation of design talent.”
