Big Moving Adventure

Sesame Workshop

I was the sole designer/illustrator and lead animator of this educational immersive Sesame Workshop app, which leads kids through an array of moving themed activities designed to educate and entertain. The muppet avatar picker, lets kids create his or her own muppet friend who is then led through an activity filled narrative about the moving process, including; hearing the news, packing, saying goodbye, expressing feelings, traveling, exploring the new home, and making new friends. I was responsible for creating original Sesame-style character designs for the many kid avatars, neighborhood friends, classmates & teacher and military base members. I also created all the interactive environments and game screens, keeping the look on-brand and fun. While intended mainly for military families, the game has over arching themes applicable to any family who has a child dealing with the changes and emotions that come with a big move.
