The Extraordinaires® Design Studio PRO
The Extraordinaires® are over the top characters with extraordinary needs. It’s your job to design the inventions, gadgets, buildings, clothing and vehicles they require to fit their worlds.
The Extraordinaires® Design Studio PRO is a powerful design tool that challenges young designers by stretching and exercising their creative muscles in a fun and engaging way. Your clients are The Extraordinaires® - over the top characters with extraordinary needs - and it’s up to you to design the things they require to fit their worlds.
Choose from the selection of diverse design clients, from a Snow Queen to an Alien... perhaps even a Time Traveller. Look at the exceptionally detailed, illustrated character cards to learn more about them, their world and their needs. With over 720 design combinations, young designers will spend many hours honing and fine tuning their design skills.
A good designer always asks lots of questions. Pick a Think Card to guide you through the 3 step design process of Research, Design and Improve. Could your invention be made bigger? Does it need to be more portable? Could it be made with sustainable materials? Using the Think Cards helps sharpen design-thinking skills which are essential to the 21st century designer.
