Leap worked with Will to design an interactive CD-ROM to accompany the books, providing an innovative and lively approach to learning Cornish. The Award was made at a Gala dinner in Bristol on 12th March where Leap were one of 46 nominees shortlisted out of over 140 entries for 17 category awards. The nomination alone was a huge achievement, but the award recognises the work of both Maga and Leap, distinguishing their respective contributions to the Cornish language and intuitive graphic design.
Author Will Coleman said: “The series has been met with great enthusiasm by primary schools. Over 50 schools are already using the materials with one free book given to every Year 3 child in Cornwall.” Will was delighted to pick up his second award within one year; last year his short film ‘Tom and the Giant’ won the Entertainment award at the Celtic Media Festival in Galway, Ireland. Will also runs Brave Tales Ltd a company providing consultancy and input for schools, developing Literacy through Storytelling.
