The Idea

Markus took photos of faces in every day objects and created The Mettas to help children to become even happier, more compassionate and kinder.


Naming each character and adding their personality traits and quirks before going on to design The Mettas brand ready to be developed further.


For The Mettas to help children develop meditative and mindful techniques in a fun way through stories and animations.

Markus Baker

Designer and Creator

Markus’ previous career as a Nursery Nurse along with his current role as a Graphic artist with a degree in visual communication provides the foundation for this project.

Whilst travelling the world in 2015 Markus found faces in everyday objects which were then adapted into the Metta characters you see before you on this website.

Creating the brand, their transport and food all followed before establishing the creative partnership with Adam, which enabled the Mettas to take another step forward.

The Mettas

So far so good…

…we have the characters, their personalities, transport, food, theme tune and what they can teach children about mindfulness, love and kindness as well as the brand identity called ‘The Mettas’.

The Mettas are kind, caring and gentle. Each has an ordinary, yet amazing, superpower that helps us all become more compassionate, understanding and loving.

With mindfulness and kindness being of the utmost importance on Calma Island, the gender of each little Metta matters little. For this reason, all the stories are written in a gender-neutral way.

If you are a literary agent or publisher who’s interested in working with Mark and Adam to take the Mettas forward, please do get in touch.
