Magnus the Dog
Concept, UX/UI Design, Illustration and App Development
In 2012, after several years of working as a freelance web designer, I wanted to try my hand in the world of mobile apps. But since I had no existing app project I could show to potential employers, I created my own app – and Magnus the Dog was born.
I wrote Magnus’s story – about a dog that becomes magnetic after being hit by lightning – and worked on the illustrations, sound, narration, and app development. Though Magnus didn’t become a blockbuster in the App Store, it did secure my employment at Small Planet, a mobile app development firm, where I worked for ten years.
