This project was for Luminopia, exploring characters and the story of a platform that would guide children 8-12 through the emotional challenges of anxiety. Our goal was to keep the content imaginative, authentic, and genuinely relatable.
Worked on: Helped with concept & pitch, design (C4D Redshift, Photoshop)
We explored ideas like the main character as a porcupine, the mentor character as a courageous and gentle lion, or fluffy birds that could puff up as an umbrella to protect others.
We explored if the main character being a ball that changes colors and body shape to express different moods.
We also explored a mentor character that would teach our main character coping mechanisms. He’s like a huggable little mountain or a walking talking happy place. Here’s some exploration and sketches!
