It took quite a bit of thinking and workarounds to implement the above technologies and give this product its desired shape. Plus, the project brief wasn’t quite elaborate. So, our creative minds had to flesh out various ideas to give this project what was required. But, at the end of it all, we’re happy with what we’ve achieved and how.
Here’s a summary of the project outcome:
Interactive, Graphically-rich Book
Capital Numbers created an interactive adventure book where kids can upload their photos, enter their names, choose characteristics like hair color and gender, and start their adventures. We designed it impeccably in a storyboard format with solid graphics that add a lot of fun to every scene.
We mainly took cues from hand-drawn sketches to design the storyboard layouts, settings, characters, moods, and landscapes.
It was challenging to condense ideas from rough sketches. But, our experts succeeded in visualizing the concepts and putting them in order one by one.
Throughout the narrative, we maintained the consistency of props, colors, textures, etc., to offer visual flow in all the scenes.
We incorporated a dynamic ‘name’ field where kids can enter their names to personalize their adventure stories.
Our custom-integrated API gives uploaded photos a cartoon effect, adding some more fun and joy to the adventures.
The Flipbook we integrated helps kids enjoy online page-flips while going from one scene to the next.
We used CSS codes to keep the forward and backward navigation between scenes simple and smooth.
Bleed and Crop Marks
We carefully placed the margins, bleeds, and crop marks in every scene to ensure nothing gets trimmed during printouts.
Our Stripe integration helps parents securely purchase their printed copies using their debit and credit cards.
We even incorporated a backend dashboard to help the admin manage all purchases, shipments, photos, etc., efficiently.
Amazon S3 Bucket
Dozens of large graphics had to be stored reliably. So, we chose Amazon S3's service because it’s infinite.
Data Privacy Policies
As a responsible team, we released the portal only after conforming to all privacy policies to keep uploaded photos safe from being misused.
Personalized Adventure Book
Executing this project from concept to release has been quite a creative journey. But, our team enjoyed every bit of it. The final product is a personalized children’s book optimized for desktops and mobiles.
While it seems like a simple adventure book, turning a stack of loose sketches into a cohesive book format wasn’t easy initially. But, thanks to our dedicated team's graphic designing skills, which helped create something so holistic from a sketchy design brief.
Beautiful Storyboard Art
What initially was a series of scattered drawings is now a beautiful animated storyboard art that kids love and enjoy. And the journey of developing this has been immensely satisfying.
