Our California Industrial Design Agency Awarded with an IDA Award!
The IDA award was made by a handful of designers, thinkers, and entrepreneurs who wanted to change the lack of recognition and celebration for the smart and sustainable multidisciplinary designs made by the talented designers and creatives from all over the world. The award exists to recognize and promote legendary design and visionaries in order to uncover emerging talent in architecture, interior, product, graphic and fashion design.

Our California industrial design agency, Mako Design, was happy to hear that we’ve recently been awarded by IDA (International Design Awards) won gold in the best product design for children’s toys with Moonlite! Moonlite is an innovative children’s toy that reinvents the way that we read and spend time with our children. Right before bedtime, parents can spend quality time reading a projected story to their children through a slideshow story attached to the back of their phones. Not only does this make it easier for both parties to see and read the story, but also makes the story more visual, interactive, and fun! Moonlite comes in an array of colors and has a large selection of children’s stories to choose from that is perfect for every bedtime.
