At some point that didn't make it into the video, we talked about how the lack of editing and art directing on many apps was very detrimental to the credibility of the field as a whole. We also talked about a ton of other interesting things including the affects on young children's brainwaves as a result of watching screens and too much interactivity. Roxie provides a lot of helpful information for illustrators about creating art for apps. At the end of the video, she says something to the effect of "feel free to contact me" but I have a feeling this was just for the students. I also forgot to include the name of the studio that she's in partnership with creating apps. http://www.ocgstudios.com So here's the video, imperfections and all. I hope you enjoy it. Roxie is awesome.
And here's a link to some fabulous details of her Maze app creation cgstudios.com/roxies-a-maze-ing-vacation-adventure/portfolio-1/
