Lucas Zanotto conceived, designed and animated the wonderful 'Drawnimal', an iOS app that encourages kids and parents to think outside the box/device. 'Drawnimal' teaches the alphabet, motivates the children to draw and encouraging them to leave the digital screen with a simple physical interaction. It shows the children how to draw the main features of animals and with a tap of the screen a funny animated surprise is revealed.
“The idea was born while my daughter and I played with an alphabet book. This book showed us how to build an origami-animal out of a paper letter. I wanted to bring a similar analogue and funny learning experience to our daily digital devices.”
All you need to get started is a pencil, some paper and the app, which can be purchased here: itunes
