Shared, interactive storytime
Far Far Away
Aimed at parents and family member's who are geographically separated from their children, the app enabled them to connect and share story-times together via an interactive iPad app with built-in video chat.
This is another Gourmet Pixel project where we worked closely with the founder of Far Far Away, Cameron Church to bring his idea to life. He had the basics of the idea, yet required visualisation of this in terms of logo and branding, along with development of the user experience and overall look and feel of the UI.
The work started with the logo, with which I designed quite a freeform logotype that can incorporate a number of visual styles and themes to convey different genres of story.
The UX was quite a complex task, guiding the user through various user permissions and connections in a simple way.
For the general style of the app, we went for a more tactile, layered & textured feel - this is aimed at kids, so we veered away from super minimal, Material-like designs for the main experience.
