Imagine an Island with Lydia Monks and Mini Boden

Drum roll please! We're pleased as punch to present the winners of the Mini Boden 'Design Your Own Cover' competition! Macmillan Children’s Books teamed up with family fashion brand Boden on a global creative campaign to raise money for Children’s charities and engage budding young designers and writers in the UK, USA and Germany. 

Throughout February 2014, children were invited to design their own Mini Boden catalogue covers through the interactive island-themed template on  Each child that entered was mailed a unique copy of the Mini Boden summer catalogue featuring the cover that they designed. 
For every cover created Boden will donated £1 / $1 / €1 to their global charity partners, Kids Company in the UK, No Kid Hungry in America and Ein Herz für Kinder (A Heart for Children) in Germany.
AND NOT ONLY THAT! The winning covers were selected by our very own illustrator extraordinaire Lydia Monks and Head of Mini Boden Design, Tara Ryan. In addition, their favourite designs win £500 ($500 and €500) Mini Boden account credit, an iPad mini and a framed copy of their cover!

Head over to the Boden Facebook page to have a look at the stunning winning designs that helped to raise a whopping £14,000 for charity (and make mini masterpieces to boot!)
