As Forest Giant continues to enrich our portfolio as an iOS development team, we constantly are brainstorming ideas towards our next big project. Many of us, having children in our lives, have noticed that the iOS library is limited in it’s number of quality, engaging experiences for children. We’ve realized the entertainment and educational potential that digital publishing has, and, as fate would have it, we were presented with an amazing opportunity to work with an established illustrator, Amanda J. Bishop.
Amanda, of State Champs, earned her Masters in Children’s Book Illustration at a university in Cambridge, England. This educational foundation coupled with her love of outdoors brought us the tale of Sloan Graham. Sloan is the lovable, mountain-enthusiast in a bear costume, and the main character of “I Love Mountains!” Brought to life with endearing animation and playful interaction, her story explains how mountains are created, where they’re found, and also highlights the native flora and fauna. Using a combination of collage, illustration, and digital drawing to put the characters and mountain scenes together, “I Love Mountains!” is a full-featured application for kids (ages 4+) to interact with, learn about, and explore our planet’s amazing mountains.
