This was a project for a visual design class. The
project spec was to create a mobile application prototype for flu
awareness, prevention, or treatment for the Center for Disease Control.
My take on the assignment was to create an a iPad storybook to teach
kids about the flu. Children can flip through colorful pages to learn
about what the flu is, how it spreads, and how to prevent getting it
themselves. Many of the illustrations are animated and come to life
when the reader taps on them. There is also a simple, retro 32-bit
style puzzle game included called Outbreak!! that teaches children
about the benefits of flu shots and herd immunity.
The storybook was written using
Tumult Hype, while Outbreak!! was coded entirely in HTML5 and
looks best on an iPad using a fullscreen capable web browser.
Flu Discovery! or Play
Both Flu Discovery and Outbreak!!
