Last week marked the release of 'Jota Primordiale', a magazine created by children, facilitated by SISSA Medialab in Trieste, Italy.

The magazine, a result of 9 months of hard work, was designed entirely by children who attended a 'ricreatorio'- one of thirteen youth centres held by Trieste Municipalities. The children (9 to 13 years old) prepared all the materials, and briefed a graphic designer on all aspects of the design - layout, graphics, content. The content was made up of photos and texts stemming from visits to scientific institutions; moreover the kids produced games, quizes and jokes for their magazine.  During the project the kids also shot videos, which can be found on the magazine blog.

You can download the final proofs of the magazine, which is written in Italian, by following this link.
