iTooch: touch, learn.
We are a self-funded startup launching a multitouch education game for kids between 6 an 13 on iPad and other tactile tablets.
Once we have chosen the iTooch character you'll design, we will use it for an unlimited number of animations, because it will be central to our software. So if you are rocket-fast at generating animations, stay tuned!
Kids between 6 and 13.
We want them to want to use the software... to learn things (!!!!!), so we badly need to make our software fun and engaging for those manga and video game overfed kids.
Bart and Lisa Simpson are our target audience. They must be fans of your creation!
We are looking for the design of a character based on the letters of the name iTooch, the eyes being the two O's. iTooch's role is to embody the educating game we are currently developping.
iTooth is young, engaging, fun and high-energy. He behaves like a kitty. He loves playing and kidding. He is highly expressive. He can be naughty at times.
iTooch's letters (except for the two O's, that is: the i,T,c and h) are the character's members. iTooch can mortph into whatever needed in order to express how iTooth feels or what he is doing (color & general look of the letters remain see attached files).
The O's (iTooth's eyes) don't morph the same: they express the character's feeling (surprise, concentration, tiredness, anger, joy, relief...).
In fact iTooch will behave very much like the old MS Office assistant.
Font used to "write" iTooch must be original, with no copyrights.
Design should keep very simple, so that animation & morphing of the character is easy.
We expect proposals to present the following elements, in order to validate the caracteristics of the iTooth character:
- iTooch written in letters (OO's being iTooth'd opened eye's)
- iTooth morphed into a character doing his/her homework
- iTooth morphed into a character expressing victory & joy
- iTooth morphed into a character dressed like a scientist and with an Einstein-like haircut expressing concentration
