This Educator Designs Gender-Neutral Toys for Kids
A short film explores the work of Cas Holman, a designer whose non-gender specific toys inspire children to use their imaginations and work together.
Cas Holman is a Rhode Island and Brooklyn-based designer and educator. With her company, Heroes Will Rise, she designs and manufacturers non-gender specific toys that “inspire constructive play, imaginative forms, and cooperative interactions.”
This short film on Holman, produced by A/D/O and directed by Remy Weber and Nick Zeig-Owens, is one of a short series on contemporary designers that premiered at the Architecture and Design Film Festival.
