Illustrations and interactive animations commissioned by Therefore London.
Product design consultants Therefore wanted to explore the possibilities of digital books and developed a concept for for a teenage girl book with tips on health and lifestyle. A pen would follow the book, and you could tap on elements in the book and get reactions. For example you could compose a meal and get a reaction on your result. I came up with style and illustrations and produced small interactive animations where you could move the pen around and get reactions on your clicks, both with text, expressions and sound. Very much like an app..
Needless to say, the digital books with pens never became a hit, today we’re happy with our iPads and tablets. Still, it was interesting and fun to be part of a product design project.
