2010 – 2013
With the release of the iPad in 2010, it became apparent that new experiences were suddenly possible with the larger screen and device capabilities. It was a new children’s playground! In collaboration with co-founder, Stuart Stein, we set out to answer a simple question: What is the children’s book for the iPad generation?
In an effort to captivate, engage and delight children, we re-conceptualized the classic tale, Hansel & Gretel. Fully stocked with high-end illustrations, rich animations, dynamic sound effects, music, narration, character voiceover and countless places to tap, swipe, poke and flick, each page was designed to not only bring the story to life, but to enable children to be immersed and active in the story itself.
In parallel to developing the Hansel & Gretel app, we designed a fun, brand identity for our company PB&J Publishing and developed creative marketing initiatives that earned us many downloads and press mentions.
