Vibrant Universe

Vibrant Universe is a game app for children from the ages of 6–12. It was created to help children who want to learn more about art but are hindered by their schools funding. The app is hosted by a small animated version of Bob Ross. He walks the user through the app and gives fun facts about what the children are learning. The kids can chose to learn about colors, shapes, paint by numbers, and art history.

More process

A lot of work went into coming up with this concept, originally it was going to be an art history trivia game, called “Take a Guess”. I eventually came to the conclusion that the game needed to have more elements and have a wider range of ways to reach out to children.
