Spark Your Design Creativity

A design education book for kids

 

Spark Your Design Creativity is an activity book that introduces kids to design while also helping them to build skills to foster creativity and 21st century thinking. This Summer, our design apprentices led a Kickstarter campaign raising over $7,000 to get our first shipment of 500 books! Now, you can purchase your very own copy on Amazon.


Our Process

Professional Training

During our apprenticeships, we work with young designers to polish their design skill and provide them with partner focused professional development.

 

Social Impact Focus

We work with global change makers to attack social problems and design solutions that will benefit communities across the globe. We aim to build long term relationships with our partners as we invest in their missions.

Measuring Success

To measure the success of our work and client communication, we document all of our partner projects through a blog-style process book, highlighting the start and finish of each project as well as a 6-month follow up with partners.

 

 

Summer Beta Program

In the summer 2015, Spark Corps welcomed it's first class of corps members by running an 8 week beta program of the Spark Corps model. Lessons learned from this program have helped refine the apprenticeship, and allow young designers to polish their design skills in professional, real-world environments. During the beta program, Orange Sparkle Ball shadowed Allie Miller and Grace Cha to document their experience.
