With the growing popularity of our National Holidays Family Fun breaks, travelling by coach to many of the top attractions across the UK and Europe, we thought we would let the children have their say!

We were interested to know how a group of children under ten would design their dream coach if they had complete creative freedom, so we put it to the test.

We recorded ten children that were a mixture of ages (between three to ten) describing what their ‘dream coach’ would look like. There were no restrictions, no creative input from parents and no images for them to use for inspiration.

Talented designer Nik Cann spent a couple of days listening to the audio footage, and interpreting their ideas into digital illustrations. The ideas ranged from an army inspired tanker coach covered in yellow carpet, to a shark-shaped coach inspired by the sun, sea and sand, these children really have embraced their wild imaginations.

The results were some out-of-this-world, astoundingly colourful coach designs! Check out the video and designs below for each of our little helpers.
