Peter Atkinson

Peter is a graduate in graphic design and also an experienced primary school teacher. He began illustrating stories and developing educational resources as a young teacher. This led to him starting his own design company, specialising in the development of interactive stories. He now works for a wide variety of educational publishers. He continues to visit schools today with his innovative storytelling style using animated characters, and has been a guest storyteller on the CBeebies Roadshow.

“I wanted to be an illustrator from a very young age. However, I continue to maintain strong links in education with occasional storytelling sessions in schools each term. These visits are a wonderful way for me to test new stories and character designs with young children.”
