An immersive, visually-rich adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic adventure for the iPad is intended for anyone over the age of nine who loves pirates, cinematic storytelling and cool interactivity. Consisting of 90 pages of stunningly composed art merged with carefully abridged text, it faithfully conveys the texture and feel of the original. The narrative is accompanied by a lush sound track, including several original pirate jigs and motifs, that help bring the story to life. The interface includes an interactive table of contents, instructions and a glossary.
• Concept and development time was six months
• Forty two of the 90 pages are interactive experiences or narrative animations and activities.
• In addition to custom sound effects, the app contains 44 original musical compositions.
My responsibilities included Creative Direction, Research, Design, Illustration and hand drawn typography.
