Amy Rose

Amy is one half of Anagram. ANAGRAM is an award-winning creative collective who make immersive experiences that bring together innovative digital interaction and stories told from real life.

Bear Abouts is a crossover in the fields of app creation, book publishing, and children’s education. Intended to recapture the magic of interacting with our hands that the proliferation of smartphones threatens to deaden, Bear Abouts is a digital/paper hybrid book that gives kids the power to create and influence stories.

The platform combines paper pages and digital animations to tell interactive stories across physical and digital spaces. It encourages invention, creative play, and imaginative storytelling with iPads or tablets.

It has been developed through the MV Works programme, and it was awarded phase 1 and 2 of the Art and Technology Pilot Programme from Arts Council England and Innovate UK.
