Where did Okido all start?

Messy grew up on the pages of OKIDO Magazine... an independent publication started in 2007 for children aged 3-8 years, designed to re up imagination and understanding of art and science. 

OKIDO Magazine is bought by schools, teachers, parents of young children and their grandparents. Adults who are keen to offer an educational element to the books, magazines and toys that they purchase for their young children are assured by the science and art content of OKIDO. OKIDO Magazine is bought by families looking for a ‘for keeps’ non-throwaway product, families looking for a shared learning experience and cross generational fun. OKIDO is enjoyed by children and adults alike and is found in homes, schools, muse- ums, galleries, libraries, hospitals and nurseries. 

Okido magazine is the brainchild of scientist Dr Sophie Dauvois (PhD BSc PG Dip.) and artist Rachel Ortas. Messy Monster is Rachel’s loveable hand drawn character. They are joined by Art Directors Alex Barrow and Maggie Li with a wealth of guest illustrators including Paul Noble, Leslie Barnes and many more.
