Project

Radovedko (eng.: Curious Kid) is a kids magazine published by HiBird Books. It is a shortcut to knowledge for little explorers - for children above 5 years, parents, lovers of illustration, and the curious at heart. Readers learn about the selected theme, which is the common thread of each individual issue of the magazine.

The theme of the 1st issue is Mythological Creatures & Monsters. Radovedko is an illustrated children’s learning guide: an educative leaflet with creative tasks and from another side the poster when the leaflet is completely unfolded.

The poster in the 1st issue is a board game called The Monster Labyrinth, which takes children and their parents on a journey with the wonders and creatures from the world's treasury of fairy tales. Radovedko encourages visual memory with pictograms, illustrations, and design. Some design decisions are intended to help kids with reading and a better understanding of the content. The leaflet together with the attachments is packed in a printed letter envelope made of recycled materials. The project was supported by the Ministry of Culture in Slovenia.
