Design agency seeks decision makers in education sector in Australia for Game of Awesome

Game of Awesome is a hilarious, educational card game designed to inspire 8–12-year-old students to write creative stories — while increasing their literacy levels.

In addition to the Game of Awesome product, they provide quality digital products and services for the educational sector of NZ that they feel can be replicated/applied in Australia. 

Chrometoaster would like to briefly share their product/services, which include high-end website/app design and development that improves learning outcomes for students, and professional development for educators.
