Magnus the Dog

iPad App

Concept, UX/UI Design, Illustration and App Development

Personal Project

After six years of working as a freelance web designer, I wanted to try my hand in the world of mobile apps. And 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 as Creative Director at Small Planet, a mobile app development firm, where I worked for eight years. An updated and redesigned version of the app (shown below) will be launched soon.
