De­sign call for new Baby Box

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Niki Ten­nant

Artis­tic young peo­ple are be­ing called upon to sub­mit their ideas to help de­sign the new gen­er­a­tion of Baby Boxes.

Baby Boxes were in­tro­duced by the Scot­tish Govern­ment in 2017 to help tackle de­pri­va­tion, im­prove health and sup­port par­ents.

The cur­rent illustration on Scot­land’s first Baby Box was cho­sen through a win­ning en­try in a de­sign com­pe­ti­tion. Its im­agery in­cludes a for­est fairy­tale scene com­plete with High­land cows, squir­rels and the Loch Ness mon­ster.

Ruther­glen MSP Clare Haughey is back­ing the call for young peo­ple with a pas­sion for art and de­sign to sub­mit their own con­cepts for the next roll­out of boxes.

Ms Haughey said:“This is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for young bud­ding de­sign­ers across Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang to show­case their tal­ents.

“It would be a tremen­dous achieve­ment for a lo­cal per­son to be cho­sen as win­ner, there­fore please en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion if you are in­ter­ested.”

Suc­cess­ful de­sign­ers will be in­vited to a Jam Event later this month where they will work in teams with pro­fes­sional de­sign agen­cies to bring their con­cept ideas to­gether.

The win­ning de­sign will be se­lected by an ex­pert judg­ing panel later in the year be­fore launch­ing in 2019.
