A friend asked me a couple of years ago to help him on an idea he was interested in building; a mobile app to help teach kids basic math skills and another to learn to spell. While I’m no longer involved in the project it was a great learning experience dealing not only with how to make the app appealing to young children but also communicating with our development team in India.
Additionally there was an accompanying card game that served as a tool to help extend the learning possibilities of the app.
The following is a sampling of the designs I came up with. They are in no particular order or significance beside being visually appealing. While I did all the UX I did NOT illustrate the characters.
