Project: Mobile app
Strategies with Kids – Information for Parents (SKIP) provides support, information and parenting strategies for parents and caregivers of 0–5 year olds. SKIP’s vision is for all children in New Zealand to be raised in a positive way by parents and caregivers who feel confident about managing children’s behaviour as part of a loving, nurturing relationship.
One of SKIPs current resources is a booklet offering tips for how to deal with the tricky bits of raising kids under 5, like tantrums, hitting, biting etc. Due to the popularity of this, SKIP decided to create a mobile app. We worked with the incredibly talented experience specialist Anais Ardid to create the user experience. Then began the wonderful process of designing the look and feel and creating fun and humorous illustrations. Due to the size these illustrations would be appearing onscreen we proposed creating appealing characters from simple shapes, allowing their facial expressions to be the heros, with simple arms and legs to reinforce the behavior each character is expressing.
