PROJECT BRIEF FOR GAMES & PUZZLES

CREDITS

While working at Callaway Digital Arts, I had a lead role in developing an educational and entertaining mobile app as part of the Miss Spider Play & Learn series. Funded by a “Ready to Learn” grant from the Department of Education, this program combined the efforts of stellar in-house creative and engineering teams as well as consultants, including game designers, a curriculum board and a research group. Our overall goal was to teach disadvantaged children, between the ages of 2 and 5, basic literacy and math skills. By offering them a fulfilling learning experience, we hoped to attract repeat app users and encourage their continued engagement.

 

As Lead Designer, I focused on establishing an intuitive user interface and user experience with a thoughtful app flow, clear functionality and logical game mechanics. In addition, I created whimsical game designs and age-appropriate visual imagery under the art direction of David Kirk, the original creator of the Miss Spider brand.
