Ex Kate Spade art director and MoMA graphic designer Julianna Goodman’s brand new iPad app, This Monster, disdains the usual slick styling found in kid’s apps. Instead, she’s plumped for a lovingly created and thoughtful app that marries a vivid, handcrafted design with delightful narratives and original music.
This Monster’s make-your-own mindset lets kids play with colour, shape, story and sound over three different activities. Colour Eater is a rhyming interactive tale where kids “feed” colour-hungry monsters. Monster Pretend! features a jumping jackelope, a musical mermaid and DIY polka dot painting and Monster Get Dressed! asks users to choose your monster and dress him up. Take a pic of the outlandish threads and save it to your photo library.
The credits are almost as impressive – music and sound by David Lanza, narration by Marty Sidman and illustrations by creator Julianna Goodman and Meghan Eplett.
