Its bestselling range of 'Design By... ' craft kits - which teaches a wide variety of arts and crafts techniques- even take on some of these world renowned artists as 'mentors', who are heavily involved in conceptualising and developing craft kits that guide users to master a specific artistic style or technique in an easy and systematic matter. Popular artists include (but are not limited to) Elodie Neuhen, Aurelie Fronty, Chichi Huang, Elene Usdin, and Charlotte Gastaut.

Djeco has some of its earliest creations in famous museums such as the Louvre in Paris and the Tate in London. Its newer designs are also sourced by many other museums around the world, including France's Quai Branly, the International Museum of Children´s Art in Norway; and even New York's very own MoMA!
In 2018, the Musée de l'illustration jeunesse moulins (Museum of Children's lllustration Moulins) in France even housed a Djeco exhibition, showcasing 200 original Djeco-commissioned pieces from 30 world-renowned illustrators - all with the same signature splash of beautiful, wildly imaginative visuals that we have come to love and expect only from Djeco .
